I am working hard on getting my son potty trained and I have been dressing him in a pair of underwear when I am at home. I keep the house very warm (80 degrees). My Mom has done foster carefor years and she tells me that if for some reason CPS shows up at my door they will consider it a sign of neglect. Why? My house is clean. There is plenty of food and toys. I can't live in fear of CPS 24/7 in my own home. Its just hard to clean up accidents if I have to take off pants and a shirt as well. Could I get in trouble if thats the only sign of "neglect?"

I am pretty sure that CPS won't just show up at your door without a reason and if they do they won't take your kid away just because he is in his undies. CPS might not look highly upon kids being without clothes but I don't think they will take your kid away for that reason alone.

Next question overall

Would you find it odd if the neighbor child screams like she's dying...
