According to the social worker, they cannot by law intervene unless something serious happens. Whatever. Yesterday, her boyfriend dropped J and E off (T and T are in school full time) without shoes, and boyfriend brought shoes in later. Today, J and E were dropped off at 640a, no shoes for either and Miss D was told by Mom's boyfriend that someone would drop shoes off later if someone had time. My director walked in, found out about the situation, and called Mom at 715a this morning. She never called back, and when I left work at 500p, E, J, T and T were still there and we didn't have shoes all day for E or J. So how is this family not worth investigating?
J has taken to spitting on the table and wiping the spit with his fingers. His development is so compromised I really saw how much he needs today. When he is not at school, our classroom flow and energy are different-his listening or lack thereof impacts the listening of the entire class. His last day is on Friday, 9/11. The reason? They are relocating out of state. The reason for that? According to Mom's boyfriend, his parents have money and they go where the money is.
I can't have kids, and I would love to file for custody of J. At least he would be in a better home with more.
