All I have to say is HELL YEA! I know this sounds harsh, but my sisters house was literly dangerious. I can't explain it any further than that, her sons room alone had broken peices of wood (from a dresser) and clothes piles (NO LIES) 3 feet tall- her sons crib had dirty diapers, wet moldey clothes and trash in it, so I have no clue where he had been sleeping-
her son crawls on top of grabage and old modely dishes to get from point A-to Point B in the house, I've never seen anything so, so HORRIBLE. I knew her house had been horrible, even dangerious before, but when it got to the point where she wouldnt let me in, I knew it had hit an all time low-
well, someone called CPS on her, not sure who, though I have my suspisions and CPS came in, took pictures and video of her home and removed the kids THAT DAY- The kids than came and stayed with me for 4 days.
n get this, what does she do???? She calls her friends, who came to her house to clean that sty (which took 4 days) and SHE WENT TO WORK while her friends stayed home and cleaned and orgnized that house.
First off, my house would never ever in a million years look like this, but IF IT HAD, and I got my kid taken away from me, you better bet I would call in, even if that ment I lost my jjob and cleaned my ass off to get my kid back before the night was though.
(which was offered to her, if she had the house cleaned by 5PM they would return her kids, which we all knew was an unrealistic goal.)
I commend CPS for doing that, protecting those kids from that enviroment, but ya know what, a MONTH LATER, and her house is just as bad again or worse, and I dont now what I should do.

Call CPS again and take care of it that way! Personally the first time should have been enough to scare the crap outta her and now all over again, something is not right she need to have further consequences because of these actions can really cause harm to the kiddos.
