  • Yes. My step daughters mother. We got a phone call from her mother's friend saying that there was pet feces all in my step daughters room, she couldn't sleep in the bed because there was junk piled on it, and no food in the house. They came out to her house, and told her to clean it up.. they would be back in 3 days. It is a damn joke. I keep my house clean for my children, and some parents just get a slap on the wrist.

  • Yes I have... we had neighbors who let their children run a muck at all hours and they were dirty, the parents did nothing but party and drink... I couldn't watch the kids live like that... but CPS checked it out and filed a report, they moved soon after so I never got to see an end result.

  • yes, my grandparents were foster parenting my cousins and they were being abusive, physically. i talked to them first, i told them that this was there job and they were obligated to treat the boys a certain way. and that if they hit or pushed them once more i would call the case worker. they must not have believed me because my cousin called me just a week later because my grandma had pulled his little brother from the bunk bed and kicked him. so i called

  • No but I would if I ever saw anything. I have had them called on me 4 times...maliciously. Every time the social worker kind of laughed and then closed the case.
