Another parent went to pickup her child from playing and discovered there were no adults home.

The times they forgot their keys and were at my house no one let them in until 8:00.

I guess my tipping point for considering calling was discovering that they don't have proper carseats as well as seeing the little guy take a nasty spill on his bike with no helmet on.
If the kids are getting hurt while being unsupervised, I would call the police. They will call CPS if they think there is reason to. Good luck mama! It sounds like this family is right on the edge either way. Follow your heart
