As many of you other moms understand I am always a tad leary of social services and do my best to avoid them. My children are unschooled, non vaxed, etc... I just would rather be safe than sorry. Well, i babysit for my next door nieghbor through the week and she was reported to DSS thsi past week for leaving her 3 year old unsupervised. (she does it constantly and I myslef was about ready to report her after I soke to her about it frequently) So, I agree they need to get involved. She will nap and he will be out running around outside and we live in a fairly busy apartment complex where he could get hurt or hit by a car..... My problem is I have him and his baby sister all week. there is already a case here as she lost her son fro 2 years so theyy are watching liek a hawk now and the caseworker told her she would be out here every day this week. What are MY rights? Do I have to allow her in my home where he is when I have him? Or can I still demand a search warrant? i of course will not appear like I am fighting against them, just iffy about the worker in my home, ya know? Or is it a different sceanario since I am just a sitter and there is a case against her already? I do not really know what i should ro should not say to her. Friday she came and asked to see him and he was right there in the livingroom so she remained in the doorway/ She just looked at him and left. But what if she comes when he is napping. Cam I ask her to come back later or do I have to let her in my home to see him?
