I received a phone call today from my sister who was livid and not knowing what to do. Her son is going to be 7 next month and her and the father take turns with my nephew weekly. This week was the fathers turn. His girlfriend had appointments and asked my sister to pick him up from school, which she did. Then she noticed bruises around his neck. When asked, he told her the fathers girlfriend did it and has been pushing him around, physically.
She said she couldn’t get a hold of the social worker, I told her to call the cops! She asked if she could do that! It’s physical abuse, it’s child abuse, yes, you can do that!
I’m outraged right now!! My kids are supposed to be spending the weekend at my sisters with my nephew, maybe it will help him feel like the kid he’s supposed to feel like at his age. I told her not to let him go back there. The social worker and/or police had better do something about this! They were supposed to investigate the father after my nephew told the social worker “bad things are happening at my dads house.” But he wouldn’t tell anyone except the social worker. So at court, he said he lied about it. Obviously he wasn’t. I can just imagine the crap she’s been feeding to that poor kid to scare him the way he is!!
So angry right now!
