Quoting Dovahkiin:" How would CPS find out? Her daughter doesn't even go to daycare. "


because she just said that crazy grandma wants to get her taken away... crazy grandma calls cps and says she was beaten at home, when in fact it was the grandma all along.

It's not the grandmothers responsibility to help pay for daycare.

What if u call granny and ask her about it. .. then she knows you know and to cover her own ass and try to get her taken from you she calls cps and says you did it. Don't bother calling that b***h. Call cps and the police.

Look, I agree that it is abusive, but I think some of you are overreacting. It can be handled without causing an uproar and potentially tearing the family apart for good. OP should communicate her concerns with Nana and her "discipline" in a calm, adult conversation. If Nana disregards her, OP needs to find an alternate childcare provider. Personally, I don't think the police need to be involved. She disciplined Ainsley in a way that was probably very common when she was growing up; in her mind, she might not have thought twice about it. She didn't hold her hand over an open flame and beat her in the head. Come on. "Whoopins" used to be common, and still are in some cultures.

This is true. Sounds like kind of a dead beat, pawning his kid off on old Nana.

I dunno, I think hitting a kid with a rod is pretty goddamn serious. Even if her old redneck ass grew up like that, it's not right and likely illegal.

You would have to swing a rod hard to leave bruises.



I think it's a little disturbing you wouldn't do anything.

I get that plenty of people find it acceptable to beat their children with random objects but there are lots of others that do not. Including myself. I personally find it disgusting. If she had spanked her with her hand, it might be something that could be brushed off. She used a ROD. A rod. Really? Who even does that? She's a little girl. What could she possibly have done to even warrant that? It's plain and simple not acceptable to hit your OWN child with a rod, so why the hell should it be okay to hit someone else's child with it?

Apparently it was the first time it happened. I guess she moved while she was being spanked and that's why she bruised. I told her again that I wasn't comfortable with it, and she said she rarely ever has to do more than put her in time out. If it happens again ill report it.

I agree... but I just think if OP communicates her concern with ol' Nana, it might not even be an issue. Nana probably doesn't think there's anything wrong with whoopins. And I mean, if she goes off and says "f**k you, I'm gonna beat her ass again!" then you know, OP has other options, including filing a police report.

I didn't say I wouldn't do anything. Come on now.
