I've threaded here before regarding my son and cps and doing what they called family preservation because they had no Residential Treatment Center (RTC) opening yet, so I said ok. Well come to find out family preservation is actually for pretty much crack head moms who dont know how to care for their children. So here these people from the company cps contracts with come over to my house 3 days a week to see me and one of those times sees my son for 5 minutes to "make sure hes ok". No - its me you need to see is ok. Anyways they admitted they were confused as to why they were even coming over - as they could tell I wasnt their typical case. After contacting cps and finding out it was my sons psychiatric problems and behavior that was the problem - they asked cps for a behavior counselor for him while the medications start to work. They said no. So now I'm here with a 15 year old genius son who refuses to go to school, want to disrepect me terribly and no control. I called cps the other day and was going to turn him over to them and they walked out refusing to take him. Apparently, I didnt say the right words. ( I am unwilling to care for my son) So my sons gal is going to refile for dependency and he may have to go into a group home until Residential Treatment Center (RTC) opens up but I figure why not at least they can make him go to school. What other choices do I have? I cant stand to see him lie around on the couch all day especially with a genius IQ. And he doesnt know it but he'll regret not getting a diploma someday. He already says he quitting school when hes 16 cause he can. And then what do I do. Suggestions? Also, has anyone turned their kid to cps? and what happens when you do? Legalley are their repurcussions/ ie. will I have a record? I have a nursing license and I dont want to lose that.
