Could really use some advise on my niece and nephews
This will probably be pretty long so sorry in advance.
My sister is 28, with four children one of which lives with me, and has since he was four months old. He is now ten. She has always had a habit of picking really bad men, and the good ones she does find, she ends up cheating on them or having them arrested on trumped up charges, so that they will get out of her hair.
Last summer they came up to visit because she was having "issues" with her then boyfriend. Her son who was 4 at the time showed me a welt on his back when I asked what happened he told me that her boyfriend hit him with a chain he called it. I questioned her, and found out the bf had hit him with one of them bungee cord thing with the hook it a week prior, and she was still allowing that piece of crap to be around thos children. I called the police, he got arrested, and cps opened a case against her which was later closed after they had3-4 pop up visits, and she had to go to parenting classes twice.
Since then she has had a string of "boyfriends" most of which she has met off of the internet, and even took the children with her to meet these men that she didn't know. When someone mentioned that she shouldn't do that it's dangerous she rolls her eyes and says "well are you going to watch them". For the past two months or so she has tried to pawn the kids off on family memebers every weekend and sometimes during the week so that she can do God knows what. The kids came here to stay the night last Wednesday, and again on Saturday wearing the same clothes they went home in Sunday and were so dirty their skin was almost black. It's took fifteen minutes to get the tangles out of my nieces hair after my mother and I gave them baths.
Her five year old says she drinks beer, and acts "crazy". She has moved in with her new "boyfriend" that she has known all of a month, and he is very controlling won't allow her to go anywhere or use her phone unless he is there with her.
I just need some advise. I don't know what to do, I could be over reacting but I don't think the kids are in a good enviornment. I don't know if I should just mind my own business, or call cps just to have them check everything out, and make sure things are okay. THis same type of stuff has been happening for years, and I know that those poor kids are going to be having major issues as thye grow up.
