    A little over a week ago, my closest friend went to the mall with her two kids. Her oldest started throwing a temper tantrum for absolutely no reason (she does it ALL the time), and her mom spanked her twice. After that, a DFACS worker approached her while still in the same department store, and tried the whole 'oh sweety, why don't you give me your name and number so we can talk about the options available to you concerning these tantrums.' So the DFACS worker ended up with her name and number, and they are beginning the house visits to check on the kids. Would you even have acknowledged the DFACS worker/provided your name and number, or would you have told her to mind her own business?

    Told her that I had it under control and walked away. That's the problem with parents today. They are afraid to spank thier kids.

    Tell DFACS to hit the road.

    In that scenario I would have told anyone who approached me to go pound sand.

    There is Georgia law that allows parents to spank kids. DFACS can go pound sand (or anything else for that matter).

    "I see how well the gub'mint takes care of adults...you think I want you sticking your fingers into how my kids are raised?"

    This is simply ridiculous.

    I was spanked as a child and I turned out fine. You know why? I learned there are consequences for unacceptable behavior.

    There is no way the state is getting into my business, too much "gub'mint" already, IMHO.

    Like MP said, get a lawyer now. The rights of the parents of this child have already been violated.

    I'm not going to make any judgments but it seems that most of y'all have not had any dealings with DFACS. If the individual refused to answer questions or provide the requested information, that DFACS bitch could have taken custody of the child and you could not have done anything about it except contact your attorney.

    Long story but I have first hand knowledge about the abuse of power and lack of accountability these @ssholes are capable of. Believe it or not they are not even held to perjury laws.

    MP has the best advice, call your lawyer ASAP. You are going to need them.

    My parents were always concerned of something happening whenever they spanked me or my sister in public. Also, they're intention was to discipline us... not to embarrass us! So... if we were in public they would always get our attention and tell us that we were going to be spanked for our actions... then they would spank us once we got to the car or to the house.

    I would have walked away and not provided any info.

    Tell her not to let them in her house without a court order.

    DEFACS is in a horrible position, if they leave a child in situation where something bad happens they take the blame, but they also get the blame if they do take a child. That being said, there isn't anyway they are coming to my house. When our daughter was born they came our hospital room wanting to set up visit to our house. It was very obvious they weren't used to being told no.
