OK I've known my BFF since high school but recently she is NOT doing a good parenting job IMHO. She can't afford child care & has 2 kids DD is 8 DS is 4 but he's autistic & has a LOT of special needs. Since she couldn't find childcare she decided to leave them alone. She insists that its totally legal but I do not agree. Now since it's summer her DD wants to play. Not unreasonable. But she has taken to taking him out of the house & bringing him over here. There's a reason I don't keep him. It takes too much out of me. I'm sorry but I'm sick.
Also she's a hoarder. Literally she collects trash. our neighbor & I decided to just clean it & we did & she was FURIOUS. The iron & oven were left on. & the maggots. UGH. we cleared out 15 bags of trash. That was just the living room. There was rancid food everywhere. There was an entire table filled with coke cans. She smokes & ashes in the cans. I've seen the little boy drink out of them.
I've tried talking to her but this is awful. I don't want to call CPS but her children deserve so much better. Example: we marked a diaper & he wore it for THREE DAYS. What should I do? I am lost.
