Mom Confessions Mom Confessions

My neighbor threatned to call CPS on me just because my ds is doing chores pretty much night and day

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

It's spring break for him (he's 12) and last week I gave him a list of about 100 chores to do. He has all the time in the world to do them and he doesn't even have to do most of them if he doesn't want to, but I said I'd pay him 5-20 bucks for all the different ones.

He just wants this xbox thing and 2 games that cost a ridiculous amount so he's working almost night and day, a lot of time in the yard or on the house.

Now my neighbor just came over and said she knows what I've been doing and she's going to call CPS on me for child slave labor!

What do I Do? Is she crazy or do I stop him from doing so much?

Tell her to go right ahead.  You're not doing anything wrong. He's just motivated to earn money.

Tell her to pound sand. If cps comes out, tell them yiur child wants something expensive and you gave him a list of chores he could do to "buy" it. It isnt required chores, but your purchase is conditnal depending on ha work.


Easy enough, that isnt illegal.

I didn't know kids earned things these days. You're a terrible mother for teaching him how rewarding hard work can be. (Sarcasm)

Im not the OP but you people that constantly assume everyone is trolling are fucking idiots! Seriously STFU and stop assuming that all CONFESSIONS in this CONFESSION forum (as shocking as some may be) are all trolls. Alot of them are very real.

Quoting emandab:

Whatever troll.

This just leave it alone and IF cps shows up, after they close your file, politely ask them to let your neighbor know the outcome
