Re: Why don't SM have any rights????

You can do something. You just need to choose the value of protecting the kids versus your value of protecting your marriage.

You can call CPS if they are truly being neglected or abused. You additionally can, in your reports, point out the fact that the father is well aware of the abuse and does nothing which makes him just as abusive as the mother.

The question is: Is it truly abuse or neglect? Or do you just see it that way? If it truly IS, I'm sorry, but your husband is just as guilty as his ex.

There is a fine line sometimes between CPS level issues and differences in parenting styles.

I know you want to back off and disengage and my heart goes out to you for how difficult that can be because you love these children. But are they TRULY neglected and abused or just borderline? If it is TRUE neglect, I guess it comes down to who you love more, the little girls or your husband.

Every storm cloud has a silver lining. Will you capitalize on it or b*tch about the storm?
