I know of a couple who have 3 children. Their 2 oldest who are around 2 and 4 years of age walk around naked most of the day. It is currently in the middle of winter here and it's freezing. I rug my children up in about 3 jumpers before they go outside. So to see these children walking around naked is heartbraking. I ask their Mum if they are cold and she just says no. Their house is also tiled with no carpet so you can imagine how freezing it is. I don't know if there is any other abuse going on so I don't know if I have a right to call child services or not.
There was an incident a while ago however when the 2 year old was found walking near the main road. Apparently the mother thought they children were over my house! The police were notified and came around but that was it.
The children also swear as if it's a second language. They think it's normal!
The children are well fed, they are actually quite fat for their age, so they aren't being starved.
The parents just have no idea really, it might be because they are young parents?
I don't want to cause any trouble. and the thing is if child services were called they would know it was us because we are their only neighbours and they don't see anyone else.
Not sure what to do.
