Well, we finally got our first CPS visit in our new state. My hubby allowed his supposed daughter be adopted by her step dad :smile: sorry but I have to admit it was kinda hard being a step mom to that child, though she's not had a diagnosis of difficult child., It's the fact that she wasn't really his, the mother gave birth while they were married, but biological wasn't his, that was kinda tough. Anyways Valentines day I called police to aid me in talking to mother because girl was hitting my son on bus and saying bad words, which he repeats. Then the next week, CPS comes out, says they were called on 15th (no brainer here). And says they have a report that when hunter is out of control he gets put in his room with door shut. I'm like, THAT"S IT!!!!!That is all she can come up with, how freakin lame. DUH yes, that's true, it's called TIME OUT!!!! Well, this stupid CPS thinks that's child abuse. I am like you are soooo crazy people, do YOU want him during a RAGE???? I'll be more than happy to call you when he does and see how you handle it. Anyways I had to sign a release for documentation from psychiatric doctor when he was hospitalized that it is doctor recommened. I called the doctor, she could not even believe they thought that was child abuse and me of all people who moved to yankeeville for better services for my son could even be accused of abusing difficult child. But anyways I have the documentation. So they can't mess with us, so I am messing with them, asking for this service, that service and another, My usual stuff, I even invited social worker to therapy session to learn more about his problems (obviously she doesn't have a clue)!!!!! Just a vent or a victory note!!!
