After doing much research, reading reports, reading testimony from many sources, both men and women and parents, and reporting on it myself, I have concluded that the entire national "Child Protective Services" should be abolished, in its entirety. Many state and local politicians and even other bureaucrats have said they have way too much power and are not answerable to anyone. There is widespread cases of "kidnapping" from parents who have committed, absolutely no crimes, widespread scandal of child napping rings, lunatic workers that target parents to take their children, because the agent herself is batty.
The question comes down to, is the government put in place to protect us or to punish wrongdoers. The answer is obviously, simply to punish wrongdoers. The punishment of wrongdoers is "hoped" to deter other would be wrongdoers from bringing harm to their fellow man.
When it comes to questions of what is harmful to a child, you get into a slippery slope of what actual humans, agents, feel is harm vs what a parent or an ordinary person perceives as harm. All jokes aside, some of these agents think that feeding your child meat is a "harm". You see how dangerous this is? "I'm vegan, and you're feeding your child meat, I'm taking the child."
Some parents feel that beating a child, whipping a child, physically chastising a child is to be expected of parenting. Others, who consider themselves modern, see it as barbaric. But, remember, that used to be the thing that people did for thousands of years. Even psychologists / psychiatrists are split on whether corporal punishment is good or bad for a child.
We have police for a reason. If someone commits a crime, they will be found and locked up. In the end, that's really what this agency is there for. They really aren't "protecting" children before something happens anyway. And, yes, in the past, police did do that service for their communities. So, it is not out of the question that they can still do it.
All that being said, I return to the original premise. CPS should be abolished. Whatever parents may or may not be doing, an outside agency that actually harms children, violates privacy rights, violates parental rights, has no place in our "free" society and it should be abolished. I have read too many cases to ever side with the agency, no matter what people say parents do.
