DHS?

It got me wondering,

I posted a question a little bit ago about my DD bumping her noggin on the side of the wall and me taking her to the ER,...*SHES 2*
I asked what did you ds or dd do to give u a heart attack and rush them to the hospital

Well, I came acrossed this ladie saying, " MOST PEOPLE DONT BECAUSE OF THE DHS BEING INVOLVED" for single moms etc etc
Hmmm
I didnt HAVE DHS called on me and my DAUGHTER was okay!
And i wouldnt have cared honestly if they were called! I needed to make sure she was OKAY ..made me wonder HONESTLY WHO WOULD REALLY RISK THEIR CHILD and not take them to the HOSPITAL if they hurt themselves, IN FEAR OF DHS?
I was dumbfounded to read it,

  • When my youngest (2 at the time) fell and cut the corner of his eye - about 1/4" from his eye, thank God - I didn't even consider I'd get in trouble for it. How absurd. And fwiw, I'm a single mom.

    WOULD YOU RISK IT OR AGREE NOT TAKING YOUR CHILD TO THE ER, IF U THOUGHT IT WAS NEEDED?

    OR WOULD U BE IN FEAR OF DHS ....ITS NOT A HARD QUESTION AND ITS SIMPLY PUT WITH DETAIL IN THE POST,

  • I am grateful that they do check into things. You never know anymore. And if some one is worried about DHS maybe they have a reason to be?

  • anon 10:29,
    I fully agree,
    She said it was because she was a single mom, but it shouldnt matter if she were single or not,
    I feel bad for her kids, now knowing she wont take them to the ER when needed,

    And anon:10:30,
    No,,..not a crab today...Just pregnant, so ...blame it on my hormones ,
    Sorry if it came off that way lol
