I'm wondering why they would call? What were the questions in the first place? I'd like to hear a follow up.
They called because in this day and age too many people have turned super judgey and have decided they have the right to check into/interfere with other people's lifes with very little basis to go on. She's lucky that Child Services wasn't called by all those people first.
@7, That really isn't fair. If I asked a child when she did this weekend and the answer was, "I'm not suppose to talk about it." or "How is your mommy doing?" and the child thinks they aren't allowed to talk about it, that IS concerning. It may be nothing but it is better to check and risk seeming nosy than ignore it and it end up being a serious case of abuse.

But If people were asking about your life in every detail eventually you would be tired of responding because some times you just want a bit of piece and quiet , I don't think child abuse would be the first thing to think because she probably is a trusted mom and have been going to that school for maybe a year or longer and I think the way the child had said more concerning then actually is but I don't think people would believe child abuse because she probably dropped kids home
They aren't asking her, they are asking a five year old who isn't saying "I don't feel like talking about it." she is saying "I'm not supposed to talk about it." Those are two humongously different things. Also why does being there for a year or more mean she is trusted? If she doesn't participate in anything school related, if the teachers/principals do not know her personally, why would they trust her? Also your last sentence makes no damn sense.
Kids just talk about everything. No one should question home life though.
If there is reason for concern then home life should definitely be questioned. As an educator I've had to question home life and call CPS. One case turned out to be unproven but the other was not. There were severe issues aND child had to be removed from parental care.
Why are they even brining up home life in school? People should mind their own business.
The kids could have just been talking amongst themselves during "free time" and the teacher overheard. I don't really think that retainers are a big personal matter. This could have all been avoided had OP not made her kid talking about her retainer a bigger deal than it is.
My home life never got brought into my school life like that!! That's awful! At least people care about your kid though. Always nice to know. I have a retainer too... I only have to wear it at night now but they suck and are so embarrassing!
