i haven't posted for a very long time and I'm sorry I haven't been around to respond to the amazing people who have helped me through my darkest times. I hope you are all finding your strength.
i found out in late August that I am now the subject of an investigation (non criminal - it's my professional board that's investigating me).
They got "an anonymous accusation " of 3 claims - child porn, harboring a sex offender, and failing to report. I was devastated. I have worked my whole life for my dream job and I'm damn good at it.
i know who accused me - as soon as my daughter was molested, she woke me up and I immediately called the cops and it was horrible but he's in prison now and we started moving on with our lives.
then I got knock on the door. I had just gotten a dog the week before for my daughter (the victim) to help her and me as a form of therapy. It was animal control saying they got an anonymous call saying I was abusing the dog by leaving it for weeks at a time with no food. I had just gotten the dog the week before and had been off work the entire week, home with the dog all day. The officer apologized when she met me and asked me if I had an angry neighbors. My daughter cried the next 3 nights wondering if they were coming to take her dog away.
then I got a letter saying an anonymous person reported me for the false claims I listed above. The only people I know who would even know to go directly to my state licensing board, and also who harassed my ex after that fateful night, and then started staring at me menacingly anytime I left my house, was my cop neighbor. They think I was complicit in my daughter's abuse, and want to get me fired from my job. I've already put my house up for sale to get away from them, but I'm facing lawyers bills and the odd chance that my daughter may be outed as a victim at her own school because her mom is the subject of this investigation. I don't know what to do.
has anyone else been blamed for their child's abuse? I IMMEDIATELY called the cops when she disclosed and he went to jail based on my report, and yet my own neighbors want to see me lose everything.
My husband and I are a blended family and we each have a son. They are 6 months a part, 8 and 9 years old. We have full custody of my son and his son visits us once a month and all summers. His son has always been incredibly clingy and at the end of visits with us has dramatic breakdowns when its time to go. He carries a small stuffed animal everywhere he goes. My husband blamed himself on his...
I am starting this thread for any parents out there struggling with their little guys talking about "wanting to die." While their lingo might be more innocent (my son states "the world hates me," "I just want to run away & never come back," "I hate everyone," "I wish I were dead," etc.) the re ality is that they are having suicidal thoughts. This could become even more dangerous as they...
