Ladies I have NOT talked with Ds mom yet.
 
( I had a dream that I did and it was very upsetting!
 
) Monday was a holiday- Thanksgiving- my excuse for not contacting her. I'm nervous and so not looking forward to talking to his mom.
Ds still coming around and I do everything in power to dissuade him from staying! I'm a nervous wreck while he's here! D usually visits in short spurts- he'll play here for a few days or a week and then go somewhere else to play. This seems to be a very LONG stretch this time!

i'm sorry that you are dealing with this Sheri but if you want my honest opinion that boy would not be allowed to play with my children. He's a child...you're allowed to tell him that your kids can't play. I know your kids will be upset but that is better than what might happen and it's not fair that you have to be on pins and needles while your kids play.

I should - and I do try to discourage him from coming over and/or staying but he sure is persistant!

I've been trained in UK child protection, and would strongly urge you to not confront D's family directly, this should be dealt with by your Social Services/CPS/equivalent, they are trained to handle this, by confronting the family yourself you could be inadvertently destroying or weakening any possible case for prosecution.

I wish you lots and lots of luck, I have had a recent occasion where I have wanted to report someone close to me to Social Services for child abuse (neglect), and I know what an agonising decision all this is, and that's why it should not be on your shoulders. That principle is an @r$e in MHO!!! He (above everyone) should know how to handle these situations, I can only assume that child protection is not as high profile in Canada as it is in the UK.
