Report them so they can get the help they need and the children can grow up without that influence

U should keep kids far away from drugs. Ask the people do that thing in other places. Kids are inncent and can't influence them when ther're so yough and pure.

You got to take a stand and tell them don't being do drugs around your children. People that do drugs around children are shellfish they don't care as long as they get high. Trouble lurks around them so take a stand for the safety for you and your children. For a person that's been around the block take my advice.

Call the police. It's not that difficult of a decision.

It doesn't matter who it is. It's stupid and illegal. I'm sick of parents never doing anything about their idiot kids and then whine about it.

her kids dont do drugs
it takes a cold hearted person to call a 5 and 10 year old kid and idiot

You said it was your step daughter. The way it was worded it sounded like your step daughter was the one doing drugs. I apologize, if that is the case it makes it even easier to call the police on the people doing drugs. I wasn't calling the 5 and 10 year olds idiots. Again it was worded to where it sounded like your step daughter was the one doing drugs. You still need to call the police though, I don't care how tough of a decision it seems like, its not fair to make those kids go through that.

If you say anything to them I doubt if they would listen or they wouldn't be doing it in front of them to start with. I would however tell someone with authority. Better that than a sick or lost child from being exposed to the drug's or accidentally get into it.

You call the department of children and families! Is this a question you really needed answered? "Hmmmmm, I know kids that are in danger. Before I do something let me post a painfully obvious question on the Internet."

This is an unfortunate situation. I would first talk to the parents about it. If it's a regular thing, they're going to need help stopping the drugs. Having been that child, you need to get them help ASAP, the children and the parents. You can call the police or children's services. If you call children's services, I believe you can make an anonymous tip. If you don't want them to know who called that is. Those children need to be away from those drugs right NOW. There are too many bad things that could happen. Whatever you decide, do it right away!

Call the police first. Child protective services second. They are ineffective anyway. Leave kids in abusive environments. If police are involved they would be more likely to do something

I have a further question - I am a grandparent and am trying to get Grandparent Rights after the death of my son. I know she does drugs around the child and has since he was born. I there any way to have a 4 year old drug tested to see if he has been exposed to drugs, like smoking pot and things like it?
