Me and my husband spend about 2 years taking our 6 years son to the skate park in Folsom. We created friends there. My son was adored by his friends of all ages. Some of his friends were older, about 13 years old. And they were always giving Israel attention. We used to stay hours watching Israel skate and in the end we would bring pizza and share with the boys including the attendants at the skate park. We created a group of friends we thought. The park has a kiosk with an attendant of The City and we sign in and write our cell phone number every time we come and pay $3 fee. We were happy in this community and sometimes we would even offer to pay for some friends.
I suffered a lot with allergies during the spring 2016 and one day after spending hours watching Israel I decided to leave him at the park, spoke to the attendant, and to his 13 year old friend Jack - I went home to take some medicine for the allergies and get him some food. One mom saw Israel and I was not there, she called the cops. When I was on my way back to the park I got a phone call from the police saying that my child was unnatended. Yes, I said and I asked the police if I was in trouble. He said no worries but don't do this again and expect a visit from the CPS at your house this week. The agent came and visit and met with me, my husband and spoke our Son. She was surprised and happy to see our home harmonious and all of us living peacefully -
She left saying I'm not worried about you and I won't tell you how to parent because it seems you guys are doing a great job.
And we continued living our life in a positive routine as always when a couple weeks later I received a letter to show up at Court or I would be arrested. My case was reported as Child Endangerment and I understand that my kid was little but I was trusting community, the older friends and attendants that had cell phone and could get a hold of me in case of emergency. I learned the lesson and I am 100% present in my children's lives. And I made a mistake. But I never meant to hurt my child. And I never do. There was a misunderstanding, my case was reported as me willing for my child to get hurt.
Ryan showed up to save me from this nightmare and I am ready to be free. I took an awesome Parenting classes program in Southern California and I think every parent should take. We all need support and when I needed support I was put in a very difficult situation, scared of the dangerous reality of our world and hoping to see our kids playing peacefully and thrive -
Israel was so stoked to be at the park, thriving and being in His Highest Self, ripping on the skate park ramps. I am conscious of not neglecting my children and who knows me know that.
I'm happy to be completing my 1 year probation respecting the laws and respecting everyone and paying attention in all that I do to stay safe and create safety for my children, my Family and my friends. I trust myself and I trust Ryan. I am so thankful for Ryan with his knowledge and his desire to defend his clients from crimes and experiences that no one deserves.
I highly recommend this respectful professional -we live and learn. Ana. San Clemente, CA.
