I deleted my question and rewrote it as anon because the mom is on here. So sorry if I repeat myself and thanks to those who answered my 1st question. I did some research about reporting to cps and from what it looks I can call or go to the office and make a report. I read they will ask for the home address and if possible my info (which they wont share with the family unlesss I go to court). anything else I need to know? I'm a bit nervous. the parents dont beat the boy senseless but who knows what goes on behind closed doors. When I am at their household they seem to forget courtesy because they will spank the boy hard, smack his head hard, and scream and scream at him. he is barely pre-k age. He has come up to me in the past and whispered "i'm scared of mommy"...I want to do something for this child. Confronting the parents wont do shit. they will probably laugh in my face or say the cliche "how dare you tell me how to raise my child" and proceed to gossip about me. I need to take this a step further.

If you think someone is abusing their child, it is absolutely your responsibility to report them. Please do it right away.
