I find that it's a sticky situation to call about children, especially if you don't have all the homelife details.

That is really unfortunate. It seems too me that either someone is showing her that stuff or they are giving her too much freedom on the computer which is not good. She is just a little kid and I know that kids get into things that they shouldn't but really, she should be watched a bit more closely.

And I am pretty sure that the teacher or someone at the school has a legal responsibility to report this to the authorities.

That is what my friend and I felt which is why she wants me to find out.

Whether someone made a report to CPS and the identity of the person making a report are confidential by law under almost every state (to protect that person from retaliation).

You and that mouth again!!!:):) LOL Glad to see you back!!:)

I agree with your point. It gets to be a very sticky situation when anyone starts discussing who's called cps and who's going to call. Teachers are mandated reporters in every state I believe. They are required to call and report something but you are correct, to protect the case they should not be discussing it.

People often also have mistaken views on what cps can do. It is not easy to remove a child from the home and laws vary vastly from state to state. CPS may even be working with the family to resolve the issues in the home.

That's the point I was trying to make, but it just didn't come out right.
