Ah, well in that case by all means yes, call CPS. State it's an ongoing issue you've heard several times, not a 1 time occurrence. You don't have to give your name or any identifying information. Since it's verbal abuse more then likely they will send someone to the house, and just ask to come in to observe. They will let the mom know there's been a complaint, and will observe how she interacts with the child. If they feel something is off a case will be opened, if not they'll close the case. Then if it continues to happen you call again, and again. The more complaints the get the more serious they'll take the complaint. That's so sad, I'm glad she has someone to step up and be her advocate.
