While I think that CPS does amazing things in helping children get out of bad situations and such, I also think that way to many people call CPS on people when they have no real grounds to do so...People also use it as a form of revenge...Do you think there should be a penalty of some sort if someone calls CPS more then once on someone and nothing comes of it? Have you ever called CPS on someone? Why? What was the outcome?
I have personally had CPS involved in my life due to struggling with addiction a few years back (I am not over two years clean and CPS free, lol), however just recently I had CPS call me and ask me questions regarding something someone had reported. It was totally false information, not only that but far fetched, and I do not know who called, nothing came of it and it was dropped. There wasn't even a follow up visit. However, I couldn't help being angry and upset because I busted my #ss to turn my life around for my kids and I have two healthy, happy children who are safe and loved. I know people that are afraid to answer their doorbell because they are scared it will be CPS over some bs...I even had a friend kill herself over them taking her children and as soon as she died, they gave them to the dad, who is a drug addict. I know the system is far from perfect and their are exceptions to every rule, I just want everyone's opinions. Please do not post any mean comments or judgments, this is a place to share your opinion and obviously everyone has a different one:)
