I met with her today and told her i had spanked my son and that he had 2 bruises on him. And that im not sure if they are from that or not. He falls A LOT and has bruises elsewhere. She called me and informed me her supervisor said to make the call to cps. Im afraid they will take my kids away. They just closed my case in July. My boys were in foster care last year for 4 months because i had ppd and called cps myself asking for help. They were returned home July last year and the case remained open for one year. Im freaking out.

This is why so many people are scared to reach out or ask for help. I hope everything turns out ok for you and your kids.

wow...this is what's wrong with society. you're seeking help, and mention spanking to your threapist (which isn't against the law) and in turn you get CPS called on you?

good luck mama

"I don't beat my kids, I just sometimes hit them when I'm angry."

I think the problem is the bruises and the fact that she doesn't know if she left them on her child or not. Spanking because you are mad and when you are mad can be a problem. Good luck.

if you know you are doing it while being angry, then you need to sign yourself up for parenting class to learn how to deal. that way you are being proactive

Leaving bruises is illegal, that's abuse.
