You child was dropped off to you on Sunday evening with bruises on both their legs from their knees down to their ankles from your ex having them for the past week. Your ex tells you that once your child woke up on Sunday morning they had appeared and she suspects a ghost did it. When you question "A Ghost?" they says yes, there has been some weird things happening in their house. Things moving from one place to another, unexplained water in a tea kettle. But once you ? it again about a ghost is the one putting bruises on your child, your ex says "Yes I am having a priest come and bless the house to hopefully get rid of the ghost. I hope I don't do anything to make it mad so that it wont harm me." They are adamant that a ghost is the one causing the issues. Your ex leaves and you ask your child what happen to make you get all the bruises on their legs they answer "A ghost at mommies house did it." You look at the bruises and you can tell they are about 5 or 6 days old not 12 hours. They are dark but brown because you can tell they are healing.
How would you handle/ react to this if it happened to you?
A report was filed with Social Services, the child has went to the dr and had a FULL exam and thankfully nothing is broken. We have had an interview with CPS and they have done a visit to the ex's house and they feel the child is in no danger. They feel that the ex is not going to harm the child. They also feel that if we were to go get a Protective order for the child, the judge would more than likely not give it to us since there is not past mental diseases. In the visit to the ex's house they said the "ghost story" was just a joke. It was not to be seriously taken. We now are concerned then where are the bruises coming from if the "ghost story" was a joke???Answer Question
