I know how social services work, there own children have kids, and there own children draws checks off the state. most of the social workers have worser problems with there own kids, and a little advise I would give to anyone that gets there child taken away is look the other way, when a social worker takes a kid they lie ,ky is the worst messed up state in the world you are better of moving out to another state then dealing with the faimily courts, and every thing ,I know I used to work for the state I quit because of what they wewre doing to children , and parents

LOL rich? Yeah right.

Nobody wants to take care of your crack babies. Just be a good parent and you won't have anything to worry about. KY takes kids away because when it comes to the kids we should be very serious, and I applaud them all for it. If you want to kill yourself with whatever you're in to then go for it, just don't drag your kids down the drain with you.

Well here is the way I see it, I know social workers and they are extremely overloaded with work because of people not taking care of their kids. It is a shame that the workers have to put their families second because of the workload that is put on them by low lifes. I am guessing most of the previous responses were from people who have had their kids taken away, just look at the way you are. First of all if you are going to get on here and run the social workers in the ground you should learn how to spell and type. Second all you are doing is making yourself look "worser" as one lady put it. LOL If people would just take responsiblity for their actions and grow up and be a parent then you would have nothing to fuss about. I know the everything is not fair in life, BUT GET OVER IT!!!

I have been trying to get the system to help me for years with my ex and the the things he subjected our child to during his visitations. I got no help what so ever from them, and no it wasn't "hear say" I was going by, it was things on record. However with a very great attorney, I got the visits stopped. I always thought child protection services was just that, but found out different, the hard way. They were completely useless to my child and her safety. It is too bad that a parent has to spend thousands of dollars(although worth it) to keep a child safe. But hey, I'll give them them this, call in something serious like head lice and they will RUN to your door.

I assume the majority of people that complain about Social Workers have had to deal with them in some fashion, or have had family who has.

The way I understand it, Social Workers first have to be tipped off about a neglectful or abusive situation, or assigned by the court, to investigate and see to the proper care of children wherever their care is in question. I'm assuming that they actually have to find something in the course of investigations to support the allegations before they can take any action?

I'm also guessing the complainers didn't like how it turned out in their case. Only they themselves know if they deserved it, but I find it impossible to believe that Social Workers are all out to get people and ruin lives.

I've seen and read several news stories about Social Services being understaffed, underfunded and overworked to the extreme, particularly in our area, because of the enormous number of people dropping the ball on taking care of their families. These Social Services jobs are clearly NOT lucrative or good paying jobs in the least. One can put in as many hours flipping burgers and make more cash, with the overtime. That means that the majority of people doing this tough job are doing it because they truly want to help. And I don't see a person of that resolve and caliber knowingly and deliberately messing with people just for kicks.

If they over-do it on the side of caution for a child's sake, so be it - better they do too much and cause a little upset here and there then do too little and a kid is hurt or killed on account of sorry-a$$, stoned, abusive, or criminal parenting.

If they can't handle everything that comes across their desks and that agitates anyone, donate some time to help out, or tell your representatives you want to see more money go to help Social Services out if they expect your vote next election.

And... If you're a sorry sack of sh!t that's put your self and your perceived needs, addictions, social concerns, or other dysfunctions ahead of the needs of your family, and now you're whining about it, then I hope your kids forget what you ever looked like, and that you never have occasion to poison their lives again. If you cared even a little about your flesh and blood, you'd want better for em too, instead of whining about good people trying to do their jobs, and do what you failed to: Taking care of those who can't take care of themselves.

Just my opinion, of course.

Perhaps this is because I take care of my family, as my parents did before me, as do the families of those I care to associate with.

I'd rather not have the sort of first-hand knowledge displayed by the key complainants here; it means I'm doing something Right.
Where else would one who isn't a neglectful criminal or their associate learn about such things, if not the media? The wise and unbiased Topix forums, perhaps?

That is my point exactly. I was terrified that my child would be hurt or killed on account of sorry-a$$, stoned, abusive, and criminal parenting. It was all there for them,on paper, but nobody wanted to step up and do anything. So you are talking to someone who hasn't learned from the paper but has been living a walking nightmare for years. It has takin years and like I said before, thousands of dollars to get my child "protection services"

Doesn't work with only children.

Social Services forced my grand mother into a nursing home because someone contacted them that she was alone and suffered from dementia.

She did have dementia, but she was never alone for too long a time (10 hours at the most). She had a live-in relative staying with her. She was NOT nursing home material. She wanted to stay at her home and could be difficult if placed in a nursing home. They (Social Services) were told this.

Anyhoo....because of Social Services "intervention", she was placed in a nursing home against her will (her mental state was enough that she could be forced there)....and within 6 weeks she was dead. She had fallen there, broke her hip, and contracted pneumonia from it.

We sent an obituary notice to the Social Worker.

I am so sorry. I also understand, as my mother passed away due to neglect of a nursing home. How can Social Services make that decision against the wishes of the family? What makes them think they know what is best for your loved one?

I'm sorry for you loss but I agree that an elderly lady with dementia should not be left alone, even if it is only 10 hours. A fall and fracture can happen anywhere unfortunately, and if it had been in that 10 hours alone then it wouldn't have been any better.

Its not that they know better than you, its that you vote in your elected officials who then set the guidelines that they follow. If you are not breaking a guideline then you have nothing to worry about. For example, if the above had company full time around the clock (or did not have dementia) then nothing would have been said.

I'm sorry for the lady whose deadbeat boyfriend is endangering her child. Unfortunately in this time there is still a lot of red tape. Its not as easy as just snatching a kid away. One big lawsuit because an agent missed a step and it would significantly hurt their funding and then how would they help anyone?
