Thanks for the advice. My step daughter's mother has 4 children by 3 different men. We are in regular contact with her first ex husband. The 2 of them share a 17 and 13 year old. They too have stated the same conditions of the house as my step daughter has.
Unfortunately, we don't know any other adults that go into the home. According to my step daughter, the only people that go into the home are her, her siblings, mom and step father b/c of the state it is in.
My husband and I are hoping by calling CPS, they will do an investigation. I am reading articles where the accused don't have to cooperate with CPS, and knowing this woman I can guarantee that is what is going to happen. Maybe if she knows someone is watching she will either call the landlord or fix the conditions herself. We were also contemplating contacting the landlord instead of CPS, but I feel like that is over stepping our boundaries. My husband, however, did share that home with her while they were married. He was removed from the lease over 4 years ago.
We are very concerned with Winter coming and the cold air that will be coming through the floors. My step daughter told us that their window ac units weren't working properly all summer and it has been miserably hot in the home, couple that with the exposed floors and I am sure it was miserable. But AC is considered a luxury. We fear that the winter will bring freezing temperatures and it will be cold.
Thank you for taking the time to read all of this and offer your advice. I think it would be wise if my husband put a bug in the ear of the teacher.
