I'm 37 years old i'm a ex felon i'm currently living with my parents with my two oldest daughters 14 and 16 my parents adopted both of them at a young age. I was going through court issues and figured it was the kids best interest to adopt them to my parents. I've been in their lives since day one even while Incarcerated. I've been convicted Of fleeing an Alluding. Absconding on bond, ccw, hunting knife, possession of meth, Been to prison 3 times for my crimes. Well my daughters started hanging out with the wrong kids and wanted to hang out and party with them. So they started sneaking out of the house late nights and drinking. We caught them doing once and we grounded them from hanging out with their friends for a week and they didn't like it. So they decided to runaway.
While that is certainly something within the powers of CPS to attempt, there would be court process for it.
Based on your facts, I would not call that outcome likely. If CPS alienated every parent whose teenagers snuck off and drank or smoked pot, there would not be many teenagers living with their parents. But to speak more deeply on it, you should really reach out to a family law attorney, and go over all of the facts. There is a lot of information missing, in my opinion.
CPS cannot order anyone to do anything. However, they might keep a close eye on your household. Be extra careful.
CPS can certainly open an investigation, but it certainly seems like the kids are being teenagers and you and your parents are doing the right thing by grounding them. If you have more specific questions, I would suggest that you contact a local attorney in your area. Best of luck.
