A Canadian mom’s recent visit from Child and Family Services is making headlines. When most people think of Child Protective Services, they view the department as a safe haven for children who have been neglected or abused by their parents. So, of course, when a social worker arrived at Jacqui Kendrick’s Winnipeg home, she was devastated. The accusations brought against her have sparked quite a debate, because it seems as if her parental rights are being threatened without probable cause.
According to TheBlaze.com, stay-at-home mom Jacqui Kendrick received a visit from a social worker with Child and Family Services. The social worker reportedly asked to do a “well-being check” to ensure the safety of her children. Apparently, someone contacted CFS to complain about Kendrick allowing her children, ages 10, 5, and 2, to play unattended in her fenced-in backyard.
Kendrick says she was asked a series of questions about their personal life, her parenting style, and the disciplinary tactics used to reprimand her children. Even worse, the CFS social worker “had to look to see where my kids slept. She had to see if we had enough food in the house.” Needless to say, Kendrick is quite displeased with the unknown person who reported concerns about her parenting.
Manitoba’s Child and Family Services wouldn’t comment on the specifics of this case but it seems as if there HAS to be more to the story, doesn’t there?
