They really need to start doing their job. The social workers are lazy. When they do decide to do something about a call they take children from homes that do not need to be taken and leave children in homes that clearly any person can see the child does not belong there. Does anybody know how we can fix this?

uuummm well the so called "men" need to be paying "child support" they helped make the chuldren too!! and actually they dont even do that part of their job. When my hubby and I seperated they were supposed to get child support from him but never did...but I did not care because he was still buying things for our children and seeing them and helping me with my car payment...because he is someone you can call a real man!!!

I know first hand of these kind of situations unfortunately. I was told by a case worker that they have to believe what is told until proven innocent when it comes to children! 2 weeks and lots of $ later we got our family back. Misunderstood info can become heartbreaking for some! People trying to start problems need to mind their own business! The people who need dhs to step in are getting all of the govt assistance and never bothered!

I've witnessed how the system works. I had custody of my sister's children, and hadn't been told anything about child support, but she owes the state of Mississippi somewhere $10,000. If she owes that much money then why haven't her kids received it.

Because they don't care aboutthe kids or what they are going thru. They leave children in homes they have no business in and they take children they have no business interfering with. They pick and choose who they want to help. Instead of doing what they should they caLl and tell you what was said and give the bad time to fix it. They tell drug addicts when they will be drug tested. The place needs to be completely revitalized, everyone there fired and give the jobs to people that care about children and not a damn pay check. DHS and their sister places that "help" children are a f*ing joke.

I don't fully agree with you. I think they care about the children, they are just overworked and under staffed. I do agree that they do a lot of calling and this allows time for things to get fixed, but I think it goes back to them being under staffed, they don't have the man power to go out and investigate every case, so they call instead. I do agree that the system needs to revamped!

They are understaffed but when it comes to addicts they shouild do their jobs and not tell them on thursday we are testing you on monday. That's 3 days to get clean all that is needed for most drugs except weed. When they get a molestion call they should stop what they are doing and check it out but they don't, but if someones calls because they feel like someones hoiuse isn't clean enough and they saw the parent spank the child and they don't agree with it they run right out to those places without a momoents notice. They don't handle the cases or do the job they are supposed to. No drug addict meeds to be raising a child so giving them notice is only fixing the problem that time, so someone beats the drug test and go home and starts cooking meth again in the kitchen with their child there until someine turns them in again and DHS gives the time to fix it again. Its a horrible thing they are doing understaffed or not cause they aren't protecting the child but their own butts and its unacceptable
I hate the system

Be glad its not union county dhs. They are ten times worse. They took my six year old step son in december, right before christmas. His mom allowed his step dad to verbally mentally and physically abuse him. But we were told, even though we had joint custody of the child that dhs can't legally take from one parent and not the other. Prentiss county and union county both have ben to check out our house, given us drug test because of allegations made by the mother, put us in parenting classes and therapy, and still only get two one hour supervised visits each month.

I think this office needs to be shut down, they are not in it for the children, they make deals with the parents and often times send the child away to a facility for a week or two, thinking that is going to solve the problem in the household. The problem is the parent, not the child and DHS only see's the parents side of everything, as opposed to listening to the child and taking those Rose colored glasses off and looking around the house to see the unliveable conditions, but that's the child's fault, the child lashes out due to an unloved environment that is full of grown folks doing what they do best, and the parent threatens the child with calling DHS every time she has a flare up and doesn't agree with the parent, they fight, and actually get club fighting action going on, who does this, and what office that is sworn to protect the kids is only concerned with protecting useless parents? Answer me that, this office needs to get rid of these hand picked ninnies and get people who care

let me guess, fort lauderdale is where you went to evade child support right? lol my dad ran off to arkansas to keep from paying my child support. you put it in quotes like they shouldn't be held accountable for the kids they make.
