A girl I work with has confided to me and a couple of other women at work that her husband will not allow for child care in their budget. They have a child in school and a 18 mos old baby at home. She works days, he works nights and the baby is left in his bed during the day while she is at work and he is in bed sleeping. When the school age child is home on breaks from school,she has to watch her sibling and she is way too young to be babysitting. I feel bad for that baby being in the bed all day with no one to feed or change or play with him. Someone finally called CPS but it was over the lack of cleanliness in their house and the case worker didn’t even ask them if they had proper child care, also the case was dismissed because they cleaned up before she got there. I have told this girl that she needs to put those kids in day care, especially the baby. She just keeps saying her husband won’t let her. I wonder if calling CPS myself would do any good? I don’t know where they live and they are not listed in the phone directory. I don’t like reporting someone but if anything happened to the baby I would never forgive myself. I would appreciate any comments any one may have?
