I recently went on a playdate with a new mom I met whose 3 kids were the exact same age as mine. It was in a public park and I had my husband come to be safe. She spilled some very intimate details of her life (even though it was the first time we hung out). And I told her some things about me. Including that we have recently in the past three months gotten our children back from CPS and that we felt our children had been harmed while in care (0nly our eldest and we felt this way bc my four year old has told us that she was touched and where, our youngest was with a different foster family and they were amazing.) I also stated their wasn't much we could do bc we had already told CPS and they felt like we were just trying to cause trouble (though they moved our children). I told her this bc she had told me how her children were touched by their daddy and that now they were on the run from him and in hiding though she never reported it. Today I got a call from one of my mandated workers telling me that someone called my case worker and told her that I arranged a playdate for my kids with someone I didn't know, told them that the kids were in still in foster care and being molested and that my husband was probably harming them too. This was all false and made up but the only person who could know details like that was my husband and this girl and I know it wasn't my husband. So now CPS feels I have some problems making healthy boundaries. My question is, how should I react? I feel so very angry bc I certainly saw things about this lady that were not great parenting but I didn't feel the need to report her. What should I say and do?
