My question involves child abuse or neglect in the State of: MO
I have 3 step-children in Missouri and we get visitation during the summer and winter breaks. Currently CPS makes visits to the house and has been for some time now but the mother is still being extremely emotionally abusive to the children. Last year she actually attacked her daughter and the CPS worker said the mother was just stressed out. Last night she went on to actually tell her over and over her father doesn't love her, scream at her and be extremely cruel. The daughter is now afraid to talk to the CPS worker because of last year. Who can we talk to to get someone to listen to the children and not make excuses for the mother. We even have several saved voice mails of the mother leaving extremely nasty messages in front of the children and in one she actually makes her 7 year old get on the phone and repeat hurtful things.
