    The more reports are made the better chance a child has, reports come from nurses, drs, teachers and the public. The authorities can't do anything if they dont get the reports. I'm a mandatory reporter also and it angers me when friends who are teachers will not make reports as they say its a principles job to decide and ive been left reminding them their responsibilities that means they report themselves i dont turn around and tell my num to report something that i know of.

    I'm sorry you feel this way - but when it comes to child safety, then yeah I'd prefer that society "followed along" and reported appropriately.

    The more reports the higher a chance of help, if there is already a case the ops report won't do anything, if there isn't it may be the difference between a kid living with neglect and a family getting help

    Authorities can't deal with **** if everyone myob and doesn't report it!

    When it comes to child safety I'd rather a bunch of 'clones' reporting then everyone myob and another dead kid on the news

    How do you think they find out about things that are happening so that they can deal with it?

    Thats exactly what reporting is - you're telling the authorities "hey I saw this, and I have concerns for the child for these reasons". And the authorities go investigate it and go from there. You don't do anything further, you let them deal with it.

    But it needs to be reported, so that the authorities know about it, so that they can deal with it.
    Exactly what I was going to write, the authorities don't have crystal balls

    To be honest, even people who says to just walk away might actually reconsider their stance on that when face to face with it, no matter what they write on a forum.

    I saw a post about this on a bss I'm part of (I don't live in the location any more though). I thought it sounded familiar.
    It made me uncomfortable the way they were going about trying to help and I thought it was a wind up.
    OP, you did the right thing and I feel ashamed that I scrolled past the original post

    I've been on the recieving end. It wasn't their business, it didn't involve my children though so that's different but I didn't warrant that caused crap that was totally unnecessary. So I can't help but dislike these situations.

    People are often asking for hand outs from the local bss.

    Hold on I think it's a bit different than a kid being beaten or abused on the street, blowing it out of proportion. Even in that situation I likely wouldn't intervene. I can understand someone in authority reporting but just some random I reckon leave it to the authorities...
    I can't even adequately manage to get my head around the fact that you wouldn't intervene if you saw a child being beaten or abused. I'd like to respond, but I value my bub hub access too much.

    @zoz, I too have been on the receiving end. At the time it crushed me, especially since I knew who did it and it was done purely out of spite. But I am grateful they did it. I am grateful someone cared enough that if there was actually something wrong, the appropriate people were aware and were there to offer support. I am glad to know someone- a total stranger in fact- actually cared enough about my kids to take that action (even if it was done for the wrong reasons). They don't simply swoop in and remove kids or anything like that unless absolutely necessary. They are able to provide guidance, resources and support for those who need it. Well, they try to anyway. In some cases it may be necessary to remove children temporarily until a suitable plan is put in place (eg finding more stable accommodation). The whole its nobody's business is ridiculous. Protecting children who are unable to do anything themselves is everyone's business.

    Update. ..the senior admin sent me a message saying that insulting admin will not be tolerated and that they are not linked to the police or DOCS or anything and he would have blocked me sooner! I said half our city is on this site surely you have some sense of moral responsibility to the community and here is a child identified as being at risk and when someone suggests more is done then donated goods they are removed from that site! I never once insulted this admin... I was blunt and matter of fact and I did defend myself back about her assumptions of me. Wow...talk about when good people sit back and do nothing. What a fine example of that.

    How blunt were you? One persons bluntness is another persons personal attack..
    (It's all about perceptions).
