Just moved and DD made a friend. They live in a 2 bedroom house with 3 kids. DD plays with the little girl. Anywho, she came home to tell me her friend sleeps in the closet. I was all like wha??? DD says the little girl sleeps in the closet in her parents room while her 2 brothers sleep in the 2nd room. Do you think I should report this?

how big of a closet?  My apartment's master bedroom has a closet so huge you could use it as a nursery or office.

If it's a walk in closet..who cares...
My closet will fit a twin bed and dresser with room to walk around it.

Some Walkins are huge.

Id say live your own life and stay out of theirs.

My DH rented a closet in college. It fit a bed... Lol.

I'm guessing the parents took the doors off and put a bed in the closet.

I don't think you really know enough about the situation to really call CPS. I mean, I've seen some pretty big closets lol. As long as there is nothing else that would cause alarm I wouldn't call CPS.

There are still doors and she has a bed in there. I feel so bad for this little girl.

Are they smoking crack in the closet? Reporting something like this clogs up the system for those that really need it.

I would have to see it for myself.   In our complex all different ages have done this with closets to fit an extra person in a one bedroom or 2 bedroom apartment.  Our closets can fit a twin bed and a dresser in it with walking room.. As long as she is not tied up or restricted to that space, I see no issue.
