Last year around this time my two younger kids were in headstart. My youngest who was three at the time is a diabetic. I had to sit through every breakfast and lunch with him at headstart to check is blood sugar and give him insulin because they legally could not. After a simple doc appointment we switch to giving him his shots in his legs and butt area because the doc said his arms needed to heal. (the arms were the only spot our son would allow a shot on a daily basis) headstart new we changed where we were giving him his shots. Right after we changed that I was contacted in person at the headstart building by cps. They said there allegations that the bruises on my son's arms were from physical abuse. The case was closed right away because it was clear the bruises were caused by insulin shots. After the meeting the teacher of my kids class would not talk to me, make eye contact, stayed clear of me, and avoided me at all cost. I knew someone from that building called cps on me and I know they knew those bruises were from the shots and not us physically harming our child. I know it has been a year but could I have done something about the false claim in a legal sense to headstart/teacher for this?


ETA: I dont want to do anything about it now. I was just curious if there was something I could have done about it when it happened. That is all.

    Didnt think I could. I am not going to do anything about it now. I was just curious if I could have done something about it a year ago.

    You can pretty much sue everyone here in the US. I don´t think it is very reasonable to do that more than a year later. Why didn´t you do something right away?

    She clearly stated she wanted to know if she could have, no reason to be so bitchy. The entire country isn't as money hungry as your comment makes it sound.

    No, you can't sue for getting your feelings hurt.  They are mandatory reporters and no matter why they "thought" the bruises were there they need to protect themselves and report you.

    The more time you let go by, the bigger the chance of the judge dismissing it. I think you could and should have done something right away. What happened there was not right, and the ones responsible should have had to answer for it.

    If you would have done it then you could have sued but you're too far passed the time frame. Did she not know he was diabetic? I know they recommend to not give the shots in the arm because of brusing and I know from an interview Bret michaels had some serious issues when track marks developed an ER doctor treated him for a heroin od instead of a diabetic issue :-/
