I hate to make a post about cps, but...
We have this neighbor girl. She's about 9. Always dirty, disheveled looking, asks ds for snacks a lot. Was just outside in 10 degrees in snow...no hat, no boots, no mittens ever, she doesn't have any. Super long pants dragging in the snow all wet. She just asked to come in and play with ds, 5. Ok, fine. Poor kid has a split lip, bandage on one hand, and a big bandage on one foot (she took her socks off because they were soaked). No straight answer about how her injuries happened except the foot...her shoes don't fit right and give big blisters she said. I hung up her coat and noticed my hand smelled bad after touching it. I'm not saying there's abuse in her home...but I'm pretty concerned about neglect.

I feel like when ANYONE senses abuse it is our responsibility to take action. If you think there is abuse going on then you should report it. Nothing gets done by people doing nothing.
