The school called DYFS and said possible sexual abuse of DD b/c of irritation but never called me first. HMMMM, maybe b/c DYFS had to go and question the school about a fight between Dad and his father 2 months ago and now the school and nurse are LOOKING for things. DYFS told me to take DD to a doctor and that would suffice as proof of no abuse. The doctor was sooo sweet and said school nurses bring up "garbage" and she's sorry and see no indication of abuse. Yeah, I straight out told her why I brought DD there. So, bactroban for the rash and even a 25% discount b/c the doctor felt bad for me. At least DD has the cream that will help better than the Desitin. The rash really isn't that bad. Just a couple of pimples on her leg and minor irritation by her you-know-what. ;) Bunch of nit wits with way too much power at school and DYFS.Answer Question

I was going to say exactly what the other posters said. They are by law required to report. Oh, my family physicians office always gives 30% off when paying with cash. Most offices do give a discount. I think they where just trying to make you feel better by saying they would take 25% off.

If the school "suspects" any form of neglect or abuse regardless of the findings they are legally obligated to report it. I can't believe a doctor's office would say such a thing and be serious. Maybe they were trying to calm you down. These laws are around for a reason: to protect children and it does not matter how you feel. They did the right thing. The school can't worry if you will be upset or angry, it was about doing right by your child. If they had called you would have had an explanation, but in the case of a suspected issue, that's not good enough.
