My grandchild is 4 years old and my daughter has been estranged from me for pretty much all of that period. She drinks, she's loud and dirty and quite frankly she stinks. She has no respect for anyone and is pretty much always drunk or something worse. She has a different man in there everyday and my granddaughter frequently complains of them being too 'noisy'. I have her here right now for the night and she has turned up with bruises, an irritation rash and stinking of alcohol. I just feel sick. I can't believe my daughter is like this around her child, I NEVER thought she was this bad. I am not close to this child but she is my granddaughter and I love her. Can I just not give her back to my daughter if I call CPS right now? My daughter is pregnant again according to my granddaughter and I feel for her new baby also. I'm just so worried right now and my head is spinning.Answer Question

I would call the police and have them contact the emergency CPS number. No way in hell I'd just let her go back.

You need to protect your granddaughter, so yes I would.
