Okay, so my ex-stepfather has a two year old son, and the son's mother is currently staying with me. This morning, she woke me up around 6 AM telling me she needed me to clean up vomit in her room. (keep in mind I have a hard enough time cleaning up after my own child, let alone someone else's) She then said she needed to take her son the the ER because he had a fever. When she got back, she told me he had stomach flu. When I thought about it, her son has a very bad diet. He eats about 3 fruit roll-ups a day, drinks at least 2 cans of Coke (warm), and the past few days he hasn't had an actual meal. The last time he ate an actual meal was maybe Saturday, and he vomited that day too. That's not all. A few weeks ago he took my disposable razor and shaved his chin, causing a deep cut in his chin. Where was his mother? Sitting at the computer playing a game. He also will walk around in a dirty diaper, and screams when you change it because he has a rash. Today I changed his diaper and he had a rash ALL up his leg.
So the two questions I was wanting to ask is:
Is this a child neglect case?
If so, would I be in the wrong for filing a CPS report against her for neglecting her child?
EDIT: He is very close to Brook, and I adore this child deeply, so I am just looking out for his well being, that's all.
