- where there's smoke there os usually fire. Parents need to look in the mirror.
The sad thing is that people like her are using up precious time and funding, and are taking away the help from those who really need it. All for petty reasons such as a grandchild standing up to her, and telling her that she(g.child) will no longer see her if she continues to say nasty things.
I remember my society class in Nursing, and we looked into the whole reporting thing, and how it works. There was something like 40% of reports were made maliciously. That's a lot.
And it will keep happening, and the funding will keep draining, until the Govt gets it act together and gives the system a long due overhall.
The problem though, is how do workers know it's false until they investigate. Overhauling the system won't change the fact that CP still needs to investigate to make sure.
I'm not sure where the 40% stat came from, not saying it's not true for a particular state and year. But I would put it at more like 10% or less. Maybe sometimes someone notifies with a concern something is happening when it isn't. But in regard to vindictiveness, I think it's not as common as people think and an excuse from those that in fact do deserve involvement.

But yes, they still have to investigate, and it must be so frustrating for CP to have so much money and time wasted when there are children desperately in need.
