    The smashed windows were not boarded up therefore anyone could get in putting the kids at risk. Yes we all have a few cobwebs bit not tons and certainly not with spiders everywhere. And as for hanging out in your bedroom all the time , what kind of parent spend all their time in their room? Shouldn't you be interacting with your children? Playing with, teaching and bomding with them? It's one thing to be in the lounge and asking your kids to hang out in their rooms for a while for time out but a whole different thing to hang out in ur room all the time and tell ur kids they are not to come in under any circumstances :-/

    Default Re: Parenting concern please help

    I wouldn't be in a hurry to send my child back at all..sorry to say. I think I would mention your concerns to someone..not sure to who though, but I dont think the kids should be left to fend for themselves whilst the adults are in the other room..and only letting the one child come in?? Something suss there I feel. If it was a special visit for your daughter you would think he would have been paying her extra special attention.. Not the oposite. Just my thoughts.

    Default Parenting concern please help

    I wouldn't be sending her back there. Wasn't the whole point of the visit for him to spend some time with her? Hardly happening if he spends the whole visit in his room!

    If it was my child they wouldn't be going back there there is a difference between some time out for adults, which is healthy and have your kids looking after the younger ones while you never come out of your room. The smashed window in itself isn't an issue, but the fact it hasn't been fixed is a safety risk for people breaking in. The kids have nits and know they have, so the parents would too. granted nits can be hard to get rid of and it may be a case they have been treated.... or it could be a case of the parents don't care and haven't done anything.

    The first thing I thought reading your OP was the same as ciomumma - drugs and that they are using and wasted in the bedrrom and that's why the kids bar one aren't allowed in there. I could be way off, but that's immediately what came to mind.

    Default Parenting concern please help

    Lovemyfam - yes, everyone has broken windows occasionally, some cobwebs, and some time out from the kids... But there sounds to be more going on here... Only a 6yr old boy allowed in the adult bedroom...? Why would they allow that if no one else..? I just think its better to be safe than sorry.. I personal would report what had been told to me - its up to docs to decide what to do next. If docs investigates, and nothing is going on, then that's great! But these poor kids may be going through more than was seen by the child during the visit..
