|I have been a teacher for quite some years and have seen my share of abuse cases. I've also heard stories of angry children turning in their parents. This is what I learned:|
1. You NEVER want to involve CPS unless there is actual physical or sexual abuse. These people work very hard to help children who have horrible things happening to them and every moment they spend on a frivolous case is time that another child is actually being abused.
2. Children have a lot less rights than they think they do. One parent of a 7th grader I was teaching called CPS and asked what parents are supposed to provide their children. As it turns out, reasonable life-sustaining provisions do not include more than one outfit. (This girls mom took away all of her clothes and made her wear the same thing to school every day until she ws thankful for what she had) It also is not abuse to make children sleep on the floor, take away blankets and pillows, require several hours of chores each day, etc. I understand that what your mom said hurt you, as I'm sure you understand that you sometimes say and do things that hurt those you love. In a few days, the embarassment will go away and in time you may even forget about what happened. Wait a week and see if you still think that calling CPS still feels right to you. I'm betting that it won't. Also, from your description of all the things you had (X-box, ipod) it really seems like your mom loves you alot. ↑
|MY MOM JUST DIDNT CALL ME A BABY BUT TOLD ME I BELONG IN PAMPERS AGAIN look people heard her call me a baby in mcdonalds and tell me that she was going to get me diapers and a crib for what i did. i have witnessess dont you think that would help with soical servcies. its not fair it was only ketchup the people in front of us were old like in 60s they wouldnt even know it was on there clothes if my mom didnt say anything.no one got hurt. i dont want to sound like a whinny baby cause im not . she had to pay 45 bucks for the clothes i ruined but that was her choice. what gets me NO OTHER MOM WOULD TELL ME THAT I SHOULD BE IN DIAPERS AND NEED A BOTTLE ONLY MINE DOES THAT. thats how un cool she is..

on the car ride home she is screaming and me and my brother. telling us we made her look bad as a parent that we behaved like a bunch of toddlers. when i try to tell her that is was my brother fault not mine. she told me i was to blame as well. when we got home she called my dad and told him. when he got home he locked up my things in his trunk of his car. then she told him she paid 45 dollars for the clothing. it was only ketchup and he made me do it. she ask me and my brother do we prefer huggies or pampers when she goes to wallmart. she just kept yelling at me.. ↑
