Re: Child Abuse
What is the “abuse” you were accused of? I am assuming that, when you say you did not fight it, it was brought up in some kind of custody hearing or something? Since, apparently, you were not criminally charged at the time, I’m wondering if what was accused even amounts to a criminal act. I have had to mediate many feuding parents and one accusing the other of “abuse” is not uncommon. But, when the specifics come out, nothing amounting to an actual, criminal abuse ever occurred. Were you accused of actually committing a sexual or violent crime against your child(ren)? Or, did someone simply describe your methods of legitimate discipline as “abuse?”
But, bottom line, free9man is right. If you think that your daughter is suffering inappropriate and violent assault, you should report it regardless of grandma’s threats.
Behind the badge is a person. Behind the person is an ego. This is as it should be, person at the center and ego to the back.
