I will NOT talk about any specific cases but if you have general questions-Go ahead and ask.

If this gets too crazy I will take this post down.

UPDATE-

Thank you ladies for being kind to each other and keeping this post civil-I have to go to work-I am on post 141-and will try to get through the rest (right now there is 165 posts and I am sure many more)  I will try to answer all of your questions within the next day or two-

Thank you-

 Many people on here say it is illegal for siblings (especially opposite sex) to share a room. Thoughts?

Bachelors of Social Work is what I had when I worked at CPS (well I still have that but also other degrees now)

This was about 15 years ago and I made 15.00 an hour (37.5 hrs/wk but tons of overtime) 

You can have a social work degree also-yes for I know someone who has a social work degree and works in the child care licensing dept

Quoting __H3ATH3R__:

Working for CPS is my fream job. What type of degree did you have and approx what did you make starting out?

I would also like to work in the child care licensing dept. Do you think that would be the same degree?

There is high, medium, and low risk-we have to assess that risk skill when looking at each case and each case details-

What is really needed for a case to be taken seriously?

Was it super hard emotionally?

Did you take your work home every night or were you able to block it out?



How many kids did you want to take home with you?

Have you ever decided that a child was safe in the home and then find out you were wrong when it was too late

lot of cases really-I can not really say worse case-because-many of them are sad and each child is an individual child and that would be worse case for that individual child

here are some I would say shaken baby, sexual abuse gone on for years that families knew about never reported, young children abandoned-no food, underweight-malnourished, nasty disgusting house-houses filled with poop and pee, babies bottles disgusting and gross and no formula or anything for baby-and I could go on and on
