True Life: These 19 Parents Faced Losing Their Children To DCFS
Raising children is no easy task. Some parents really struggle to provide for their kids- they face all kinds of challenges ranging socioeconomic struggles, to mental illness, addiction, and complicated family issues. Despite their best efforts sometimes parents are investigated by child services. Sometimes they are falsely accused of neglect, and other times the claims are legitimate. But however it comes about, it is a horrifying reality check for these parents. Read on for 19 honest confessions from parents who faced the Division of Child and Family Services.

A lot of parents face scrutiny from outsiders...

1
My neighbor called child services on me because I was teaching my son how to ride a dirtbike. She said it was to dangerous. Are you kidding me. Parents like her are what's wrong with this country.
2
Someone turned me in to DCFS. Some of their complaints were that I use profanity around my kid and that I let him paint his nails. That doesn't make me abusive! Now I'm being investigated. 😤

The thought of losing their kids is horrifying.

DCFS is trying to take my kid away. I feel like somebody ripped my soul out. I don't want to live without my son. I haven't done anything wrong I swear! Please just don't take my baby away.

2 months ago my neighbors lied to the cops and said we beat our son with a shovel. I don't even own one. Now when my 5 yo throws a fit I'm worried DFS will show up again and take him.

Even seemingly minor incidents can put a family at risk...

My husband left our kids in a hot car while he went to the store. When he came out EMS workers were removing them. Now we're at risk of having our kids taken by CPS. How could he do this to us?!

Injuries can lead to stressful investigations.

My step-son broke his arm and now DCFS is doing an investigation and even though I know nothing will come of it, I still feel depressed and anxious.
