Silly - CPS is always preferable to dad, until all other options are exhausted.

Mom or the state is always the better parent, no matter what.

It seems to be an uphill battle for fathers to wrangle custody away from the mothers. I'm one of the fortunate ones who managed to gain custody of my son, but part of that was due to the fact that my son is 9 years old now and was able to state his feelings. If he was younger, I highly doubt I would have custody right now.

My son was in a gang infested area, saw gang violence which affected him, failed school, had medical issues his mother never addressed, and basically was neglected. My ex moved to another state while I was at work one day and it took me a couple months in order to have the court order her to allow me to talk to my son. The uphill battle became worth it last summer when I was awarded custody, but it wasn't without it challenges.

My advice to the father in this circumstance, is to request a court appointed attorney to represent the children. They have an enormous amount of leverage upon the judge regarding what is best for the children. I hope the father gains custody, especially after this incident.

A minority of men are mere sperm-donors or violent wife-beaters and child abusers. But there are enough horrific cases to tilt suspicion toward caring fathers like you as well. Congratulations on winning your son back.

What these people need is prescription pot. It will cure all drug addictions if you smoke enough.

It's not fair that they did not release the kids to their Dad. People are so quick to judge a man that wants the best for his kids. More and More Dad's are taking the resposibility of raising their kids and doing an awesome job. I'm a single Mom and wished the kids Dad would be there for them. Dad's roll is just as important and the Mom's. This "Mom" made her choice let the Dad give the kids what they deserve.

Agreed! Anyone who knows pot heads knows that they have no addictions and are wonderful with children.(Especially when it come to making brownie treats.)

If these peole have pets they should be put down. Pets on meth are violent and dangerous. The children should be sent to military school because they need discipline. Kids on meth will steal and even kill.

The kids are 3 & 5 - a bit young for military school.

Clearly the kids should be put on a pot smoking regimen to calm them down from the meth environment. Any pothead parent knows that pot is good for kids and does no harm. Potheads know that pot is good for kids, especially K-6 kids. It keeps them from succumbing to ADHD since pot suppresses attention to anything.

Your sure right about that. I knew a tweeker family once. I couldn't believe the condition they would let those kids walk around in. I mean, the house was filthy, the baby was left in his rocker soaking of urine all the way up to his head. The police took all five kids away and jailed the parents for two years. They have their kids back now and are preaching sobriety in all it's forms now. A little too preachy if you know what I mean, but I am glad for them that they some how recovered. I hear most families just can't. They actually have perminant brain damage from using the stuff.

I don't understand why they treat a father like he has done something wrong too. He's the one who cared enough to save his children from their distructive home life. If it wasn't for him they would still be there. Give him some credit! Automaticly he should have his children with him. Unless he has a bad record too.
