Unless these "mothers" (not what I would call them)are charged and are handed out sentences equal to that of their child's murderer, nothing will change. Forget DFACS, they're useless, and being a government agency makes them immune to prosecution. The change has to come in the warped thinking of these mothers, who continue to put their wants and needs ahead of the well being of their own children.
Search on keyword "Sebastian Nowak", there was no reason for him to die. His mother, the one person who could have saved him, instead hand delivered him to his killer.

dfcs looks at how clean a child or children are kept, how clean the house is,how clean the yard is.
they don't look for brusies,belt marks,or any type of abuse to a child.

Perfect example of how useless DFACS is - is you're called to a house to investigate possible child abuse, shouldn't checking for bruises be a priority?

First of all, he was three when this happened, not six. Sebastian was my cousin, and his piece of shit mother is to blame just as much as the piece of shit boyfriend. There was no reason, for ANY of this to happen.
