I have this friend whose mom smokes crack in the same house as the kids, and he has found crack pipes and other such things. I have no idea who to call to get the kids out of that house. help me.

Kidnap her, then hogtie her, then put a crack pipe with some crack and a lighter near her. Close enough so that it's all she can really focus on, but far enough away for it to seem impossible to reach.

Then tell her she can have a hit, but give her something like baking soda lol. yeah I know, fucked up but it's got as much a chance as anything else working.

As a former ward of the State, I will tell you this: DO NOT GET INVOLVED! Doing so will only get Child services involved. Which would put them through the foster care machine,

I'm pretty sure the kids would rather be there instead of in some shitty foster home.

I have a couple of questions you should consider before you try and get involved.

#1) Does she actually smoke in front of the children, or just in the same house? Meaning does she smoke it even with the kids right in front of her, or does she go to a separate room and do it?

#2) Does she neglect her kids, or does she still take care of them, feed them, clothe them etc.?

Think about these and make sure you know before you even attempt to think about interfering. If she isn't neglecting them, and she isn't smoking directly in front of them, fuck off. Honestly, as long as she is doing her job as a mother, let her relax the way she wants. It'd be different if she did stuff like using money that's meant for the children's food on crack. But if she isn't you have no reason to get involved.

Not to mention just because they would be put into foster care, doesn't mean they are going to end up in a better situation. I mean, they could spend years waiting to get adopted, they could get adopted by even worse parents, they could be the kids that fall through the cracks and get abused without interference.

Think about what's actually right for the kids, not what you think is right.

I'll do it for you. Call the police in your area. Then call social services. It's easy enough to look it up on the internet.

I'm sorry, but foster care is a hell of a lot better than living with a crack head.

Stay out of it. At most convey your concerns to a parent, and let adults handle it.

my girlfriend's mom is also an addict and when coral was a baby/kid/toddler/whatever, her mom would smoke crack around her too. seeing as how once an addict, always an addict; i've learned a lot about how drugs affect lives. so in other words, this is sort of "first hand experience"

- Do not leave the situation. make sure it is attended to. especially if your friend has younger siblings in the house, because they're very impressionable.
&
- Don't call the police either. While your friend's mother is an addict, i'm positive your friend still loves her no matter what she says. aside from that, if she has no family at all or nobody who could claim her, she will end up in foster care, and foster care really fucks up a kid (at least in movies, but it makes sense.) think about it; the government pays people who take in foster children, so a lot of people are in it to get paid and don't give a shit about the children.

Now if you're thinking "yes, but she does have family who could take her",

- You still shouldn't phone the police. Coral was lucky to have a grandmother who eventually saw how bad her living conditions were and adopted her. Her mother couldn't refuse, because if she did refuse, her grandmother could just as easily phone the police and have her taken away into the unknown. In abundance to this, her grandmother used Coral as something to work for to inspire Coral's mother to get clean.

TLDR
don't phone the cops, see if there's family/somebody close to take your friend.

Really? and you do? I mean I don't approve of child abuse or child neglect, but those kids are probably not going to find any solace in child service's, again it will probably be the same or worse. Just because this lady smokes crack doesn't mean anything, I mean the OP hasn't told us anything about her mothering abilities, that's what really matters.

I wouldn't bother with the cops. Find out if there is a Child Protective Services branch in your state. If not, there is definitely some sort of child welfare branch in your state. Just to a google search to find out.

Think about what's actually right for the kids, not what you think is right.

I just wanted to agree with this post entirely, never put your own rights and wrongs, before the someone elses life. Their life is their own, and that includes their choices. If in the process it does appear to be abusive, you can't just do anything about it right on the spot. You have to prove it. You can't just change someone elses life on a wyhm because it doesn't seem right.

Well, it depends on what you think is best for these kids. You could call the police to have her arrested and the children would go to Child Services. I hate to say it, but I really don't see how you could call a professional organization about this and not end up with the woman being arrested. You could take things to personal matters and try to help on your own. It seems like it's either that or she is going to jail.

This entirely, if she still takes care of them and they're happy, I see nothing wrong with what she does to relax in her spare time.

Really? and you do?

I didn't claim to, that's why I wrote the number down.
I wouldn't trust zooos to have reliable info on social services, to tell him not to call now makes you an idiot in my books. Way to go.
