Today was the first time I have had to be in on a conversation with Social Services as a mandatory reporter. The child came to school today told us a lot of what has been going on and that when his mom got mad yesterday she started whooping him with an extension cord on the leg. There were no marks but we called anyways even though though the school psychologist told us they wouldn't do anything because there weren't any marks. At least by reporting it the other aide and I felt we had done our part. Most days I enjoy my job-today was not one of them.
