Slightly dirty home, are you freaking serious, do you even have kids!? I think you need to chill a bit, a little mess here and there happens, especially when you have kids. Unless of course your one of those freak parents who don't let your children be children and make messes and enjoy their childhood, SMDH!!!!!

CPS wont remove my cousins daughter from their home, her father is molesting her, she went from potty trained and talking to non-verbal and peeing her pants, her mom left the dad and then went back, we have called and called, but they tell us that they have to have a police officer with to remove the child and because the father is friends with the sheriff, nothing ever gets done! The dad is a registered sex offender for molesting his other daughter and yet nothing is getting done, its sad! Why bother calling if they dont give a shit!

 I saw the pediatrician call cps on her patient. The 3 year old girl was one of seven kids and had vaginal scars inside and out. The mother knew her oldest kids were doing this to her and did nothing.

I believe that Missouri is 12. My sister and I were "latch key" kids for awhile when we were kids. Some busy body felt it necessary to call the cops because we were alone one night. I was 10 and my sister was 6. Our parents were the managers of the Little Ceasars in our town and called hourly (2 hours on really busy nights) and would check on us whenever possible while Dad would go out on deliveries. Nothing really came of the call other than a cop showing up to do a well being check. She was impressed by my responsibility (checking out the door window and not removing the chain on the door before seeing her badge) and saw that we were both fine and Mom was coming home soon. It was stressful though.

Quoting Retrokitty:

Where I live its up to te parents discression on what age they want to leave their kids home alone. I'm sure under 5 is considered neglect. but there is no actual law.

Quoting mattiehatter:

For almost all of the above in your OP. I wouldn't report for a slightly dirty home or the kids being left alone if there is someone 13+ present for a short time.

you cant define mental abuse. slightly dirty home? you're wasting the case worker's time. drinking when? once in a couple years, i like to get drunk. just that one night, i go ALL out. but no one knows. or my dad- who drinks wine EVERY DAY. just a glass full, but its every day. what defines too much?

DS is supposed to be in a carseat. he's not. we decided not to keep him in one.

left alone? depends on the state/rules. my state- i can leave my kid home alone for however long i deem fit, as long as i felt he was capable of taking care of himself- at any age. told that to me, by a CPS worker as well as the police.



why is selling and doing weed not both bad? i mean, if you're selling- you're a dealer.. if you're smoking it- you're going to a dealer. either way, you're gonna be in harms way if you dont do it safe/right.

  If you take your son away from your mom when she drinks no. If you are drinking hard alcohol trying to get drunk in front of your kid on a regular basis yes. This is pretty clear. Don't get drunk infront of your kids. That's stupidity not parenting.  


Quoting camama007:

Question about number 2. So because my mom drinks infront of my son you will call CPS? Or the fact that I have had a drink or two infront of him? You are goin to call? I don't get drunk, I just have a drink maybe 2. I wait till he is in bed if I want to get a real buzz going and someone has to be here.
