I see a lot of people lately freaking out saying they're gonna contact CPS...

Umm..is the child being abused? Neglected? Raped? Around drugs that could cause him/her harm?

I got CPS called on me when my girls were running around my own home in just undies and a tshirt. Also when my child had a bruise from falling off her time out chair, and one other time for my child sneaking outside. I do not believe these to be reasons to call, but what do you think is.....?

    Lol, and you are going to ask here?? Almost every mom thinks CPS should be called on every little thing. If the parent can not provide, has the children filthy, can not feed them, the kids are full of bruises, then ok call. Now a days you can't do anything with out someone calling. It's sad, it takes away from real cases

    My sister's neighbor called CPS on her because some guys were carrying a sofa into her house and she told her 2 year old to move out of the way and joked with him about how she should tie him up to keep him out of the way.

    Yes I understand what they are for. Sadly though they themselves forgot what their job really is.

    We had CPS called on us when dh and I were dating because he got into it with the cop across the street te alleged whatever it was supposedly happened was when we were gone all weekend and dd was with her father. We think it was something with his roommate and his little girl and although I don't remember exactly what it was it wasn't CPS worthy.

    They aren't anything but legal kidnappers.

    People abuse cps...and its unfortunate, because there are children out there that are actually being abused, and cps doesn't do shit for them. I know first hand about that.

    As someone who cares for foster children I absolutely understand what it's for.

    actually your child getting outside unsupervised is a reason to call. That is neglect and puts that child in a dangerous situation.
