What a joke! Why are their so many kids in this county in these screwed up households? It's the most heartbreaking situation. Is there anyone that can be called besides children services to take care of things, bc they obviously don't do their job. I see kids not being watched, not being taken care of, bounced around from place to place while their mommy and/or daddy stays high. Misguided, mistreated, uneducated, disrespectful kids grow up to be misguided, mistreating, ignorant, disrespectful adults. Geez people, put your kids first!

I agree 100%. It's sad but we can't change it. We live in "THE #1 POOREST COUNTY" in the state of Ohio. Pike county holds the highest rating for teenage pregnancy and illegal tire dumping. Nobody cares. There are too many uneducated people crammed together in one area, those who are educated prefer to seek out their own kind. People just don't care! You best bet is to take it into your own hands or stay away from it completely......

Unfortunately, Pike County Children Services does not make the laws. However, I'm not saying they do a wonderful job either.

i was told by childrens services themselves a few years ago that they are not a preventative agency. they cannot do anything until a child is hurt. so if you want them to do something make sure the child is hurt or injured before you call them. THIS IS PATHETIC!!!!!!!!!!

You need to keep calling and calling. My calls have been dealt with correctly. But there has been so many ppl falling out they make things up to get parents in trouble. Which is so wrong when someone stoops to that tactic. It just makes more case overloads with so litle caseworkers to provide time in pike co. So my advice would be give detailed info and jot down as much as possible and no hear say, they want facts. And as well give your name so they can update you if they need more information. If nothing else call the cops and do a well check, they will be happy to do it.

I think they are pretty worthless. I understand that some of their reasoning is based upon requirements that need to be met that are set in the ORC. I think it is sad that we have come to a day and age when parent's have either abused or allowed their children to be abused and when they have more children, the fact that they don't have custody of their other children because of abuse charges filed on them, it has no impact on the current case. I bypassed these idiots completely and just filed for custody for myself within the court...and was granted it without hesitation!

So true idk I know the statistics of child abuse is climbing rapidly. I know that this agency as well as others they do try to help. But I will never know why they keep putting the kids back in unfit abusive homes. Just because someone takes a class. Does not make them better it only masked the problem for a little bit to get the case closed. Then the child is right back reliving the same events over and over. I got temp custody from the court from a close friend. But they kept yanking the kid back in fourth. As soon as the mother pretended to a changed person,they gave the child back. This went on for a year, but when it comes to parents child services always think they know what is best. which is belonging with natural parents. Which is not always the best action. But I commend you on your case

Thanks soap fan. I think alot of people don't realize that this is an option for them. It wasn't difficult to fill out the forms. All I had to pay was court costs and avoided the back and forth into court completely. I know several people that have suffered with the back and forth and I feel for you. It is hard on everyone involved.

When Children Services has custody of a child it's the Judge not Children Services who decides if the child goes home.

idk I hear you on that for me it was a no win for me since it was not my child . It was just a person I befriended and knew for a few years she had no family in ohio. I was her only choice or they was going to stick the kid in a foster home. So I didn't want that to happen and he has been through to much so soon in life. I have no clue where the mother took off to now. I got a sad email the other day from him saying he needs shoes and he is wearing dirty clothes to school to only be only be picked on.He was so sad in the email. And tried to describe where he lived so I can find him. She pays no rent gets money and she refuses to spent one cent on him. Very tragic so I will start the process over again today.And demand they find him, I told the woman what was going to happen. It was just a matter of time before she slipped up again. But childern services needs to know a home where there is love and support is family in my book. let me tell you to my understanding and dealing with this issue. Childern services has heavy impact on the judge's decison. But me not being his family I am a nobody to the court system. And I can't battle because I agreed to look after him until she complied with her case. And once she did she got what she wanted and casted him away like all the other times. He is nothing more then a free magnet for her, without him she gets nothing. I will never understand why parents look at their kids as a jackpot, not saying all do, everyone knows someone like that. God has a funny way of coming along, I just happen to come across this post, and then I heard from him.But I will never give up.Idk i came here giving advice and learn a little something for myself.

Ok, I cannot believe this post! Children Services has no say weather a child goes with their parents or not, thats the judges decision. I personally know people who work at Children Services, and they do everything they can to try and put these kids in the best places. Don't blame Children Services, blame the judge who decides that these kids go back with their parents.

The Angency does have a say in wether or not a household gets investigated. I've been reprting the same woman for neglect for the last 6 yrs. in the last three years she's had two more children. One of whom she tried to have aborted and refused to even see a dr. until she was in her thrid trimester. I cared for her kids all of last summer the newborn spent his first two months in Children's and she didn't even bother to visit him or the other two that were in my home. Her electric was off for a month, she even sold her car to pay the bill but somehow neglected to do so. The first time I reported her was when the child was four yrs old and told my daughter she wanted to sit one her face. Now the child is 9 and a full time babysitter for two toddlers three days a week who has to hide in closets for fear of being abused. Agency case worker said there is not enough evidence to investigate. I'm not the only person to report this "non-mother". What is the problem?

Ok its just like some of you dumb##### who get on here and start things about people you have a underlying issue with or be it now a agency,people make claims that are untrue or unfounded because of someone they have an issue with and thats it...They do their job and are most of the time overloaded,with unfounded claims mind you...Also its not just them but do your homework,the courts have most do with it...

Ok people talk about uneducated!!! If you are not happy with the results you are getting from your local agency, call the state on them.. U can call children's services and tell them that you want the number to the state.. They have to provide you with this information.. Report them and your situation to the state.. There is always someone higher up than Phylis Amlin whatever her name is now... Believe it or not as high and powerful she thinks she is, she has to answer to someone...

A BIG FAT JOKE!!! They do nothing for kids that really need help. They have to wait until something bad happens to them befor they step in. N u r right it does have to do with the judges, but if children services is told something over n over again by many ppl, they really should go check it out
