The Importance Of Supervision, Truancy, Drug Use And...

The subject of this paper is the Smith family. The family consists of the mother, Joan, and her five children. The father to the children is currently not involved with the family and has his location unknown as he is wanted by law enforcement for a sexual abuse of a minor charge. There are three female children in the home. Jane is age 11, Jamie is 10 and Sue is age 3. Both Jane and Jamie attend class in Sometown, with Sue not of age to attend school. There are two male children in the home, John, age 14 and Jim, age 7, both of whom attend school in Sometown Reason for Services This case has been ongoing with several reports made to DCF regarding issues including lack of supervision, truancy, drug use and alleged neglect. Working with DCF Child Protection Specialists this student has been able to observe interactions with the family, including interviews with the mother and the children. There have been 10 referrals since 2011, with five of those occurring in the last 18 months. The family has a long history of problems and has had the opportunity to work with Family Preservation workers in an attempt to keep the children at home with the mother. Recent visits have shown that further involvement from Family Preservation Services would not be beneficial. A safety plan was put into place with the mother in an attempt to ensure understanding of the situation, in particular allowing Jim to play alone outside and ride his bicycle in the street late at night.
