Have Parenting Questions? Ask a Parenting Counselor for Answers
Hello, I would like to help with your question today. If you feel that your grandson is being mistreated, whether physically or emotionally, you have the right to be concerned; especially if he tells you himself that his Mom punches and hurts him, he doesn't want to go back home, and you have seen what you have. You can anonymously contact Child Protective Services in your state, and make them aware of your concerns.
And please excuse the short response; if you do need further input before applying a rating, please do not hesitate to message for me, "earthsister". Thanks.
Well. No that does not help me. Cps has taken her other 5 children and this one was placed with me from the time he was 3 weeks old till he was 15 months when the court returned him to his mother. SHe had tried to cut him out of her bely when she was 7 months pregnant. They told me that she is ok to raise him now? they also told me that it is within the law for any parent to emotionally "screw up" (their wording) their children. They would have to have physical evidence that he was in danger. CPS will not do anything until he has at least a broken bone.
So, I guess I am asking. in view of the mother's mental illness, is this a manifestation of that. Is this an aggressive trait of the illness? Since she did this in front of me, does she feel this behavior is alright? Is it alright? Am I being overly concerned?
If earthsister stepped out of the chat is she coming back?If not do I get my money back?
It will be best that I send you to an expert in psychology; I will "opt out", so that the proper professional can answer your question; I ask that you refrain from applying a rating, so that you can receive the answer that you need. Thank you for your patience.
