I've been puzzling over this for a little while but didn't want to share it because I was a little embarrassed. We recently suffered some very close deaths family deaths, my husband and daughter. I received a letter yesterday stating that they'd be paying a visit to us to 'check-up'. Does this mean somebody has reported us?
Have you ever had an experience with social services? The house will obviously be spick and span and the children are as happy as can be expected (well the littl'uns are the same as always)
What can I do to prepare? I don't understand if we did anything wrong or if it was a report. They didn't state that in their letter. If I call up and ask will they be able to tell me?
I'm so worried. I'm just starting to pick myself up again and to stop from moping and I don't think I've done anything wrong whatsoever, I've supported my kids 24/7 and done all I could. Even to the level of home-schooling one now.
If it's not too much to ask no condolences or sympathy... I feel a bit too much like I'm baring my soul on here and it's different in a journal that people can choose to read...lol. I just really wanted to ask without using the anon button since if anyone's got any other info on it I'd love a message or two.
Thank you fellow mommas. Hope you're all having good days!

I think it is very normal for social services to stop by for a visit after such a tragic event. People often think of social services as a bad thing, but they are there to help in a time of need also.
