I reported my ex to children in youth services so it would be documented that they went there twice and he didnt feed them dinner and fell asleep as well as me finding out hes still doing drugs. They called today to talk to me about it. They have to come and ask my daughter questions which sucks just because I dont want her to be upset or anything but they said they wont just come out and say Is daddy doing heroin lol thank god! They will just ask like who feeds you while you are there and what do they do there things like that. They have to come in my home and walk through it and look and make sure there isnt anything dangerous. I'm not worried about it my home is safe! They will also be talking to my ex and going to his home as well as doing a drug test on him if he will allow it. He has much more to be worried about then me. Some people told me no dont turn him into children in youth because then they come investigating you. They wont find anything I dont do drugs. I stay home with my kids and take care of them. If I had something to hide I wouldnt have called. Have you ever had children in youth come in and look around your home? How did you feel about it?

I've never had the CPA come into my home and I really can't say that I would ever want them to. We aren't doing anything that could be harmful to the children. However, it would feel like an invasion of my privacy and that is something that I don't want to have happen in my life. It has taken me years to be able to actually have a place of my own where I really feel comfortable and I don't like any strangers at all coming into my home.

Sometimes one parent will turn in another parent just to try to make things look bad for the one parent. Thats why its important that child in youth services check out both parents homes to see if they can figure out if the situation is legit or not. I was fine with them coming to my home. The woman was very nice and very good to my daughter.

Even though this is going to be very difficult, specially for the childen, I think it is something that you have to go through to get this thing settled. I guess they just want to document everything to build a case against your ex. Hope you hang in there! As you build a better environment, and a better future for your children. Goodluck.

Well they will need to investigate the situation obviously because anyone could just call up and report things to child in youth and it could all be just lies trying to get people in trouble although I hope no one is that cruel to do something like that. I understand they need to come into my home and look around. I have no problem with that at all. He would clean up his house before my kids came over or while they were there but if they go in one day when the kids arent there I'm guessing its going to be pretty bad. But well thats his own problem. Even if my kids werent here for my own reasons I would keep my house clean. I dont think they will find anything wrong in my home or anything wrong in my history that would cause them to have a problem with my kids living with me.
