We live in a very judgmental society. It may not be what you want to hear, but it’s the truth. People make assumptions about each other all the time. Sometimes those assumptions are based on appearance, ethnic or racial background, or speech patterns. And sometimes they’re based on things they’ve heard about those people from others. Either way, whatever the source, people are accustomed to making snap judgement about others all the time. Which is why interactions with CPS can be so damaging to your family!
Imagine what your neighbors will think!
If the cops show up at your neighbors house, lights flashing, and ten minutes later they walk your neighbor out of the house in handcuffs and put them into the back of a cop car, you’re going to wonder what your neighbor did wrong. Think about that for a second. ‘What they did wrong’, not IF they did something wrong! People are conditioned to believe that those in authority are correct. That government is never wrong. And so when someone gets into legal trouble, others tend to assume that there must be a valid reason – they obviously broke the law!
So when CPS comes calling, it’s no different.
CPS shows up at your door, trailing a cop in their wake, and your neighbors are going to assume the same about you – what did you do to your kids to bring CPS to your house? They’re going to assume that you must have hurt a child in some way, or done something improper, or even been a neglectful parent and not cared properly for your kids. The mere fact that CPS came to your house, is going to be evidence enough for many people in your community that you’re a bad parent!
The stigma can affect every aspect of your life!
Imagine how this could affect your family’s lives in the future. Neighborhood parents may be reluctant to allow their kids to play at your home with your children. Some may not even want your children in their home, fearing contact with a “bad” family. Your kids may end up being teased at school if other students know your family is under investigation by CPS. You and your partner or spouse may also be treated differently at work if your coworkers get wind of it. All in all, it can be very hard for everyone in your family!
