Thanks, Marina - I hadn't thought of that. We used to have some that were kinda like the ball/chain lock where you could open the door partway but these were solid and not a chain. We were going to get those and put them up near the top of the door.

Thanks, Frustrated...we just moved into this house not long ago, but when I called DH and told him he said he'll bring home locks tomorrow. We'd been debating if we really needed them or not, with the kids older now, but apparently we do - and a screen for the back sliding glass door that she'd gone...

To be on the safe side...

A little while ago, my 3 y/o ran outside while I was doing dishes. She had been in the living room watching Noggin. She was only wearing a shirt, although I didn't know it when it happened. I asked my oldest to check on her, and she came in and said she'd gone across the street and that she'd once a...

Just my opinion...Put it in writing! In a letter to the principal and to her state that your son is seeing a counselor, and that for his privacy you will not share who it is. She does not need that information for his assessment. Write down what you just told us - she asked this question, this was m...

tnradmom,

You're not in the wrong place.

I don't really have any advice for you, other than document and keep yelling your head off about what the truth is, and keep fighting them.

Good luck!

I am a raw vegan. I know of many children being raised vegan, some raw vegan, and I don't see it as child abuse in and of itself. These situations are the exception and not the rule, and I'd hate to see anyone's thriving children be removed from their homes.

Prayers needed for 4 y/o in ICU

How do you not become paranoid?

How do you not become paranoid? The nightmares haven't stopped despite the case being closed. I'm going to be calling my counselor on Monday...I haven't seen her in two months because of the case that we had, and I know I need to let her know what happened and keep in touch with her regularly just i...

This is odd...

I posted about our current investigation and our past ones in my intro thread on the other forum, and mentioned at the end that I hadn't yet received written verification from the investigator that they were closing it out as unfounded, so I called and left a message asking when I'd receive it. I ne...

She is high functioning., undiagnosed right now as she is needing more genetic testing and an evaluation by the Duke Pediatric Genetics clinic. Remember, this was only a couple hours after I was told that she was autistic, and it hadn't quite hit me yet. The complaint specifically said that they wer...

Just wondering... Cheryl Barnes/CPSWatch

Awhile back when we were in the midst of really trying to fight DSS while in MA, I'd been reading about the problem Cheryl Barnes of CPSWatch had been having with social services. Last thing I heard was that she had been in NC and one of her kids was taken by DSS. I can't seem to find any sort of up...

Never mind. I just called and left a message on worker's phone about written verification of them closing the case, because it's been two weeks already. We'll see what happens. While she seems nice, I don't trust anyone in DSS. I just realized though that I don't have anything from the initial visit...

Hi ..new here..NOT new to CPS fighting

We're now in NC, and are waiting for the paperwork to prove yet another false allegation against us. We're a military family, and have lived in MA, NYC and here. We seem to attract problem neighbors who think they know better than us how to raise our children (we have four, now 10; 6; 5 and 4). It s...
