My seven-year-old daughter was taken out of her classroom

My seven-year-old daughter was taken out of her classroom where she attends at El Morro Elementary in Laguna Beach California. It's the number one top rated Elementary School in Orange County at the time. We live in a luxury apartment in Laguna Beach. My daughter is shaking and crying because to social workers took her out of her classroom today and questioned her and had her thinking that they were going to take her away from her mommy. We have no affiliation with social services at all whatsoever. My daughter is highly upset and I'm afraid it's going to affect her in school now. We have no open case with the Department of Social Services and my question is is there any legal action that I can take because no one will answer their phones or tell me who these two social workers were or why they took my child out of her classroom. This is embarrassing. There are plenty of kids out there that really need the help of child protective services. Not a little girl that's attending and doing well and the best school in Orange County, and has a tutor twice a week, and also lives in Laguna Beach where she is also playing soccer and is in the chorus after school called. She also attends the Boys & Girls Club of Laguna Beach after school program when she leaves school every day until I get off work and go and pick her up. Please someone help me this is not fair this is not right and I have back to school night parents only tomorrow night and I'm going to be looked upon as the mother whose child was taken out of her learning environment and question but to social workers and shaking and crying.

I am being investigated by Child Protective Services. My 14

I am being investigated by Child Protective Services. My 14 yr old daughter had a conversation with her councilor because I slapped her one morning. I don't tend to do this often and the investigator was given that information by my daughter when she was questioned. When I was asked by the investigator how I disciplined my kids I told them mostly warning, grounding and occasionally spanking. I opened the door to them and they came asked many questions and took pictures of my baby and also asked about the kids sleeping quarters. I answered all the questions they asked and gave my opinion about many things. I have 6 kids in the home, none of which have been questioned yet and they go to the same high school she attends. The investigator did not ask for my husbands contact number or my ex husbands contact information. After reading lawyer tips on what you should and should not do. I realize that I said things I shouldnt have and even let them in my house. When the investigator left all she said was that she would be recommending counciling, and that she would be getting back to me on Monday. I was not given any paperwork to sign. I would like to know what I should expect or if I should seek legal help now or when should I start looking for it. I have no criminal record, never been involved in any CPS cases and have never had such accusations. Also since my husband and children have not been questioned can they oppose to answer any questions or are they obligated to interview?
