Social workers are not always looking to break up families.
They look to protect the children from abuse or neglect.
Recently, to my surprise, I had a social worker show up at my door.
I have issues with my ex, as he is mentally not well, and a danger to himself.
The police actually sent her here, to insure that my children were alright, and that I was taking every precaution to keep them safe and away from
their father. IT IS best for them. I applaud the police and the social worker for stepping in to insure the safety of my children. It helps to have
the law on your side in these matters.
Of course there is a flip side to that coin.
While speaking with her, she did disclose to me that about 65% of anon calls to their office here locally, are malicious intent.
People just wanting to stir up trouble for no reason other than they have no real life. However, the agency must follow up on every call. A real waste
of time and government money right there.
Did your friend get a reason for the removal of the children?
