My hubbys little brother, 14yo, and his sister, 17yo, are living with my MIL. Both are smoking, 17 yo for 3 years. the 14yo for a year and a half now. MIL buys them their cigarettes ( a pack each a day). Both of the kids smoke pot at the house, she doesnt buy that, but their friends bring it over and they smoke it in their rooms. I cant send my DDs to her house anymore because the kids constantly have their friends over every night, there is constantly at least 5 teenagers at the house, smoking cigarettes, smoking pot. I dont want my DDs around that. MIL took her kids out of school in February and told the district they will be homeschooled, she was afraid they would get held back because they both have all Fs and ditch school half the time. Those kids havent been homeshcooled feb-may. They are planning to do online schooling for next year. This woman has no common sense. For her DDs 17th birthday she took her daughter to Vegas (were in CO) to hook up with her online boyfriend shes never met.
I see this as child abuse. What do you think??? Should I call CPS?
and she is the kind of woman that thinks she is always right, shes a saint in her own eyes. Very self intitled

I would call, but like the others have said I doubt very much will be done. Maybe just being contacted by CPS will scare your MIL into getting her act together.
