I heard today that a Muhlenberg County Social Services are not following their duties. When a child comes to them for help they should do what is right for that child(s), NOT Just send the Child home with a Prevention Plan, that doesn't work for the second time! We as Citizens of Muhlenberg COunty need to get our acts together to stop this! We don't need "OLDER MEN" or "WOMEN" Messing with young children! I have friends that are Foster Parents, They have told me, These kids need help for many reason, People "messing with them Sexually", Neglect (being left along with a a sibling not old enough to Babysit), Parents not taking their own childs side of the story becuase they don't want to listen, Parents on drugs, and the list goes on and on. Many of these kids attent your childrens school, Play Basketball, football, etc, and No one knows, THey carry on their lives hiding Deep inside, And Muhlenberg COunty Socail Services Don't do CRAP about. They just say, yes that will work with the prevention plan and leave it at that! How do you feel knowing that there are people out there like this leaving kids in homes they are not comfortable with? I am not saying to all DCBS, They are very good People. But Some people at Muhlenberg County need to get their ducks in a row, and take care of the Kids that NEED help getting out of what they are having to deal with when it is the Parents fault! I want to know how many other feel this way!

social workers are in a tuff spot dealing with kids. there are some kids that make false reports about parents because they are mad at one of them. SS steps in takes the child out of the home and the parent or parents sre guilty until proven innocent. it happens

I know the job is not always done right. Maybe they have reason to believe the child shouldn't be with the other parent either. But if that's the case, instead of leaving the child in a bad environment, how but a grandparent or other family member? Social Services sometimes stays thinking inside the box. I know of an abusive father who pulled the wool over their eyes with his lies, and they wouldn't listen to the child because of his age.

Muhlenberg County Social Services would not even investigate my grandchild's environment. The parent has a long history of mental health and criminal problems. You can't tell me my grandchild is not in danger! Come on, people, do your job! These little lives are too precious and rely on us to speak for them. She can't even talk yet! H E L P !

If the child wants to live with the other parent than that parent needs to step up, hire a lawyer and petition the court. Social Services is limited by federal and state laws and they have to follow the laws and policies established. Those workers do not have the power to remove children from homes...the Judge is the only person that can give custody and if there is no evidence...nothing can be done. And mental health problems dont make bad parents....criminal problems are bad choices...but the main purpose of social services is to keep the family together...not rip them apart. Taking a child from a home is devastating....i don't think you are fully comprehending that. Children do not deserve to be abused or neglected but parents...relatives most of the time have more power than the agency...just use it!

oh and one more thing....social service workers do not white glove test homes....everyone has a different view on what's dirty and trashed....the workers are looking for health and safety hazards...they can not judge people for being poor...they only remove children that are living in the worst conditions and what you have seen is nothing compared to the worst those workers have seen...until you walk in a social worker's shoes and see what they see everyday..you can not fully understand what our world is truly like.

I am also a Grandma of the same child and do understand your concern for the unknown but question how concerned you really are when you have had no interest in this childs life AT ALL since she was born. My son has had issues and probably always will but at least he didnt abandon his child like your daughter did and even worse then that this is her 4th child she has abandoned. You have 1 of her children and 2 more she adopted out, then this one makes her 4th. Even with my sons issues he still has his daughter and aparently the court thinks he should have her too cuz they just gave custody to him not your daughter. If you are such a concerned GRANDMA maybe you should teach your daughter that these precious lives as you call them are not throw away toys at her convenience. Back to your concern, did you ever call one time to check on your grandaughter? Did you ever send her anything? Did you ever even want to know her before my son ended his relationship with your daughter? Remember when he had her call you to come and get her, your husbands terms of picking her up was that she sign her rights away so child support wouldnt bite her in the ass then when we told him over and over that its not possible to just sign your kids away he came up with if she signs temp custody over then she wont have to pay... Tell me Barb, Grandma to Grandma why shouldnt your daughter have to pay child support? You and I both know you damn sure would expect it out of my son and you guys damn sure collect it every month from her sons father that you you and lenny raise. Maybe if your daughter was ever made be responsible for her actions you wouldnt be on here wishing social service would check on your grandchild. You think?

All I can say to this, is I understand both sides of this topic, however children are innocent and need protection whether anyone's around to see the damages or not! And yes, There are cases where upset teens call and make false reports, but if they were DOING THEIR JOB correctly they could easily e able to process their case, and see whats false and whats not by investigating at every report whether it seems suspicious or not.. Cant ever be too careful or helpful..

I see kids that are constantly mentally and physically abused weekly, just go to wal-mart here, see it for yourself.. and where is anyone else to see it that WILL speak up?

There needs to be a better way of processing these cases, that are better than a petty prevention plan!

Glenbrook is a good place to go and start people! Kids and teens run around all day and night in the street without anyone watching them besides neighbors, parents are passed out inside high off drugs, or never home.. Poor children dont even have a chance until they're old enough to speak for themselves and the damage will already be done by then, they'll be just like their dope head parents.

Cause its all a reaction of what they grew up seeing. What your let your chilldren see and hear does reflect on them and will make an impression on them, and if they're broken, or beaten.. They will become criminals or drug addicts to try and focus away from their inner pain, and struggles growing up.

With every criminal, homeless person, or Drug Addict is a story that links as far back to their childhood and how their life was..

Stop the neglect, stop the ignorance, and start doing whats right, and not just working for the money. Children who are beaten or mistreated depend on YOUR WORK not your paycheck!

Greenville social workers are a big disgrace to kids I have a friend who the mother got three DUI's while high and drunk with child in car, caused an accident all three times not in jail spent three days in jail and that is it! Got her kids back everytime so u tell me who she is blowing cause that shit ain't right and had it been in another county she would have already been sent to a prison somewhere

childrens services can be a bad thing for the children for many reasons taking them away from the parents can be a bad thing

The local DCBS office is a joke. They care for the ones who have them wrapped around their fingers. I myself have had dealings with them and am not at all impressed. The things they do and say are two different things. I'm not sure te left hand knows what the right hand is doing is how the old saying goes I think. It's all bull. I realize they have a difficult job, and they "try" to keep families together, what I don't understand is why they will NOT answer simple questions or give you the info you ask for. For heaven's sake, just do the right thing and don't take the side of the one who has you wrapped.

coming from someone who was beaten and abused as a kid and dhs never stepped in with very noticeable hand prints on my back and extremely under weight as a baby dhs is a joke and i have seen first hand how stupid these people are. Muhlenberg county services took my ex's kids on here say now they are at it again trying to point and find something wrong so they can take away my daughter and my ex's kids. (no we are not together anymore and no we never went to court over custody due to wantin to remain mutual and keep our kids out of this corrupted and bull system and yes i do help support) they need to be wiped out and have a whole new administration in there. someone should go in rip their kids away from them cause of here say and let them know how it feels they are heartless and dumb. money and blood is what pays them off.

i know a couple that live in Drakesboro that are unfit parents but of course child protective services wont do anything about these children that are being mentally,physically,or sexually abused and it's a damn shame....i also know Sarah and Brad Neal are filthy house keepers and they finally got their kids taken away and thats the best thing that could happen to the kids even though they live with their grandma that is a crack head also......its a sad world we live in!!!
