I'm really trying hard to understand how the minds of people who do this work. I'm not referring to a call to CPS when there is a genuine need for children's safety and proper care.
What I can't fathom is how anyone can try to hurt a family by reporting them to CPS out of retaliation because they're angry and this is their only means of getting back at you. They hide behind the anonymity of a hotline call knowing that their name will never be revealed.
They don't see the fear in the children's eyes when an investigator shows up unannounced at your door. The tears the children shed because they're frightened and don't understand why these people are in their home asking questions. They don't see how lives are permanently impacted from the experience even when there's no findings of abuse or neglect.
They don't realize because they're angry and choose to retaliate in this manner that they are taking worker's time and energy away from being able to investigate real abuse/neglect in children's homes. The real victims that need someone stepping in and helping.
I've spent years advocating for the real victims in abuse/neglect. I was a voice for those children, not the parents, but the CHILDREN. I've seen things that no child should ever have to experience in their lifetime. I can assure you my chidren are well taken care of and happy.
I want YOU - the anonymous caller behind reporting me - to know I know who you are! It didn't take a genius to figure it out. Your tactic will not stop me from pursuing all avenues to see to it you're held accountable for your role in my daughter's assault. You will not bully me!
