Daughter Lied To CPS
My second to the oldest daughter lied and told CPS that her father was molesting her. He could go to jail for something that he didn't do. Her and my older daughter created this plan, they want to be grown and don't want to listen. What should we do?

Joseph went to prison when he was falsely accused by Potipher's wife for having touched her when he didn't. Joseph trusted God.

there are kids that are abused but there's also kids that lie to get their way. don't be so quick to judge you never know who's lying the step father or the kid....and dss would rather be safe than sorry...it really depends on the county state etc. some dss agencies are honest but some are crooks. Google it folks...dss sometimes has agendas for taking kids...government grants etc. Mecklenburg co nc was doing all sorts of crooked things and got busted union co nc a dss worker was charged w child abuse for tying a foster kid to the porch with a dead chicken around his neck I believe and she was getting a big fat foster care check for taking that child in. all im saying is don't be so quick to judge.

It seems to me that the answers given up to date are not very helpful.
Why? because you all appear to be accusing the Father without any evidence whatsoever except for the statement by the Daughter this is NOT evidence just a statement.
Who do you think you are to judge? remember "as you judge you also shall be judged".
Tabitha, if you go to the police caution is needed as most belive that all Christians belong to a queer sexual sect.
Your husband will also be treated as guilty once in a police station,you could also be accused or being part of it, the police just love this kind of thing!
Everyone on here should pray for this situation and not be judging.

confused_mother, how old is your daughter, and why did she leave, if you kicked the stepfather out?
---a_friend on 7/14/10|
bearing false witness, and falsely accusing the innocent of a crime in order to harm them is illegal purgery. Sue the daughters in court for slander and punitive damages, and if they are minors, turn them over to the local juvenile deliquency courts for their offense. Personally, I would completely disown them for their wickedness, for who is to say that they will not turn against you next? You should make it a matter of public record for them, establishing a precident so that no allegations that they ever try to bring against any person in the future will have any valid merit.

make them take a lie detector test
---james on 12/3/09|
"What should we do?" Have them all submit to a lie detector test, although not 100% accurate or submissible in court, the lier will rebel and the one who speaks the true will willing desire to make that truth known. All of you should carefully consider the Divine principle of seed time and harvest, and the fact that the Father is not mocked. Whatsoever one extends outwardly towards another, that one will gather in, and the harvest is always much greater than the seed. However it turns out, try to find forgiveness in your heart for the perpetrator(s), for Christ sake. Also remind all involved that they will never help themselves by hurting someone else.

First of all CPS will, upon such an allegation, remove all the children from the home and get order(s) of protection for the children, until the investigation is complete. How do you know she lied?

Did you hear them construct this evil plan, or is this what your husband told you?
---amand6348 on 6/4/09|
Why did they create this plan, why do they want him out of their lives so badly? I think that there is more to this story.

I know a girl who lied on her stepfather. Mom sided w/her, but the truth eventually surfaced that the stepfather was innocent. This was 20 years ago, the family has healed and is happy again.
I know another girl who told the truth, but mom kicked her out of the house at 12 years old to protect her husband. He was never prosecuted. The victim is nearly 40 years old now and still struggles with this. Her stepfather has also molested others, but hasn't paid for his crimes...yet.
Don't assume your daughters are lying simply because they have other issues. These things happen either way. Personally, I'd side with my children until proven otherwise. Pray, do what you can to protect your girls and let the truth surface on its own.

You have been "instructed" to believe that...
1) your "daughter lied".
2) He could go to jail (heart tug, injustice) for something "he did not do".
3) these EVIL, EVIL children of yours "created" a "plan" of EVIL.
You have been fed the classic scenario of someone who is guilty. You have been TOLD/instructed to believe (and speak) subjectively (with a bias, jargon/lingo) so that everything you speak/say will serve the purpose of the guilty party.
You are now thinking evil of your children.
Make the right decision (go to the cops) or you'll be haunted by your conscience for the rest of your life.
What is he doing to other children?

I was going to assume Tabatha would know, and then be telling Tabatha what to do. Wouldn't you know I'm a guy! - - - so I might tend to assume a *man* would be innocent, if charged by teenage girls. Yeah, right! Good lesson for me. But I still would say to be open. *If* one is lying > what would a daughter have as her reason for lying, like this? This would have nothing to do with being mature and independent, or not wanting to listen. Someone would have a deep and very serious problem, in order to have become capable of this. This would mean a major need to look at how you have brought up your children. Or . . . what ways made you able to marry an abuser? We fool *ourselves* into trusting the wrong people.

Mother how do you know your daughter lied,is it because your husband said she did? How can you be sure he isn't lying? Keep an open mind,don't be led by your heart,use your head,for as bad as it hurts to think it could even be possible,realize there have been many mothers who turned on their children for the same thing and found out after supporting the husband,the children were telling the truth. Until you know for sure what happened don't judge the children. Could you tell us how old the children are? Cooperate with CPS as they try to find the truth. If you are a Christian Pray,Pray,Pray. If you aren't ask God for forgiveness for your sins and give your heart to the Lord.

Betty ... You are so right here.
I know a family where exactly this situation occurred. Eventually the allegations were porved to be true.
In another caee, the mother reported her suspicions to the church, but she and girls were thrown, because the father was an elder. Again it turned out the girls (all three) had told the truth about being abused.

Are you sure he didn't do it? Something could have been going on behind your back.
---Betty on 6/3/09|
What kind of proof do you have that she lied? Or are you believing what your husband says to be truth? The truth will come out.

CPS is not new at this sort of thing, they've heard it all before many times.
They know how to get to the bottom of this, if it's not true they will be the losers,if it is true...better get a good lawyer!

If they were mine and they did it to my wife I'd beat a confession from them and tape record it knowing I'd spend far less time in the can then the old Lady would for what she's being accused of.
I'm gonna go take the parenting Bible quiz.
