Would you call DFS on this woman?
So I’m having an issue with a neighbor. I told you a few weeks ago about her older son who is a little slow developmentally, and is often in charge of watching his 3 yr old brother. So the baby’s been in my garage, on my front porch, in the road, in the ditch, etc…
Night before last, she ran over panicked because the baby was missing. All the neighbors got up and went looking, he was three houses down and across the street.
My first thought was to console my neighbor because he is fast, he just takes off running full blast. Then she told me the cops were called last week because he was lost (which I hadn’t heard about), and they told her they’d take action if it happened again. She even got a door alarm to prevent him opening it and leaving, but apparently something went awry.
Hubs and I have chosen to leave it alone for now, not to get involved, but we do feel the kid is in danger.
What would you do?
