My husband and I got into an argument which turned into a small altercation (slapping and a bite mark). I ended up going to jail. He has filed paperwork to drop charges but CPS is now involved because our youngest son was in the home when it happened. They are wanting us to sign a safety plan even though they don’t see that the children are in any danger (we would NEVER do anything to harm our kids) you can see that they are well fed and clothed and clean and taken care of. They know that it happened last year (a smaller one in which my husband thought I was trying to hurt him by grabbing his arm to ask him to stay in the car so we wouldn’t be around others while arguing. Anyways, they know about that too because my husband told them thinking he had to. I am already in counseling, and the investigator said that she was talking about dropping the case because our kids are not in danger, we were just being young and stupid and are fixing our issues but they arent. Iwas abused as a child so they fear that I am becoming the abuser its far fetched and not trueIn this safety plan they don’t want us to be alone with our kids, and have to be with someone over the age of 18 and take classe
