SO I reported to school (highschool) That I suffered an bruise when my parents hit me out of something that they told me repeatly to not do (but dumbass self still did it), they never hit me before. Since I am turning 18 in 1 month and a half, and really regret what I did (reporting it since I leared afterwards the concequences of fellownies and all those fancy legal terms and how it can affect my parents and since I also have a little sibling.), does CPS (whom the school called), take my parent away from me at this time, and when I turn 18, am I allowed to meet with my parents again?
The fact that you did something you were told not to do does not excuse corporal punishment leaving marks on your body. That’s actually child abuse however angry they may have been and however much your behavior may have provoke that anger.
You will not be prevented from seeing your siblings even if there’s a CPS case open. As much as everyone would like to think that they are good parents, truthfully most of us aren’t. We just learned what our parents knew and a lot of that wasn’t perfect, so I would suggest that your parents take it upon themselves to take parenting classes and learn some different things that they may need to use going forward.
What you did could affect whether or not your siblings will be allowed to continue living with your parents.
However, unless CPS has filed a 300 Petition, your parents will be OK.
But if CPS HAS filed, however, your parents will need to meet with an experienced attorney AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
Also, there is case law that says that, in such a situation, your parents should get a pass.
