If you felt a child was in danger would you call it in????

I believe it is everyones responsibilty to make sure our children are safe.

I was watching the depressing news a neighbor noticed something wrong so called the police on a 24 year old mom. Thank God they did a two year old baby was chained to his crib and her other two were dehydrated. The mothers reasoning was she did not want the baby to wonder off while she was sleeping, and she only gave her children two glasses of water a day. She was potty training and did not like accidents....

  • Omg that's so horrible...
    Yes I would absolutely call if I thought a child was in danger. I don't care who you are or how I know you. No child deserves to be hurt or treated poorly. They are innocent and helpless and if it wasn't for us adults acting on our instincts, many of them would never be saved. So sad that there are people that evil in this world. I can't wait for the day when they reep what they sewed.

  • I have called CPS before, and would hesitate if I believed a child was in dangered. I rather they go there and everything be fine, but I don't think I could ever life with myself knowing that I thought something was going on, and I didn't do anything about it. Stories like this makes me want to cry! I can't believe ppl could EVER do this to ANY child!
