Customer Question
My 4 year old granddaughter...
My 4 year old granddaughter spent the night with me and told me her mother's boyfriend touched her little 3 year old brother. She said he ( the boyfriend) touched her brother's ding dong and had her brother to touch him. She said he put his mouth on her brother's ding dong and had her brother put his mouth on his ding dong. It's a long story but the cps closed the case here in TX and the mother (with the boyfriend) moved to Washington. That means the children are still around the children. My son is suppose to get the children for spring break it will be past 6 months when. I heard that there is a time limit to prove this. We want to get them to a psychiatrist as soon as we get them. What should be done in the meantime?

Hello and thank you for using JustAnswer. Are you asking from a mental health perspective what can be done for these children in the mean time or from a legal perspective? Also as I understand it the children are physically with their mother and boyfriend, correct?

What Customers are Saying:

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
