I’ve taken care of this kid for about 2 years now and the parents have neglected to take care of his medical needs despite me telling them to take him to the doc. I’ve been tempted to call CPS but i’ve been wanting to wait for them to change but there’s no luck. My question is Have i neglected to contact CPS and if I do will I be in legal trouble?
Unless you are a mandatory reporter (doctor, teacher, etc) you have no legal duty to make a report to CPS so you would not be in trouble.
You do not have an obligation to report as a private citizen, however if the child is subject to abuse or neglect, you should.
