What can you do if you know another mom is doing drugs around her children??

[deleted account] ( 6 moms have responded )

I know of someone who is smoking meth when she has her two young children. She is also in an early pregnancy with her 3rd!! I do not have proof of the drug abuse and I am not friendly with her, but others have witnessed it including her own husband. I do not think the others want to come forward against her though. Is there anything I can do to protect these children before something bad happens?

I think if anything;if u tell them she is doing drugs while pregnant they should drug test her.but u never know with child welfare;a lot of times they drop the ball & awful things happen or else they terrorize innocent mothers

I don't think it's true there's nothing u can do about it;@ least if u call them they will usually launch an investigation.any member of the public can call I'm pretty sure & if an innocent life is @ risk thn they should do their job

Agreed I really want to do something but I have no way of finding out where her stuff is in her house only that I'm positive it is there. I was told by someone else there is nothing I can do without more proof. They can't just go search her house over an anonymous tip. If the estranged husband is unwilling to call about it then I'm out of luck...?

wht do u mean before something bad happens?she's smoking meth while pregnant?tht's so dangerous for a baby;I've personally met a little girl whose mother smoked crack & did ecstasy while pregnant & the little girl is missing an arm & brain damaged.seriously.call child welfare but maybe first try & find out where she keeps her drug paraphernalia in the house such as a pipe or something like tht
