    The whole of what I understand of the mormon male dominance comes from her recounting about seeing her neighbors raise their children, far away from utah and not among the supportive web of other mormon families, which led me to believe it's just that ingrained. Of which I will say in a nutshell - No child should be raised to submit to sexual assault by a sibling; there is a limit to freedom to practice religion.

    Either call DCF, or the next time you see the child outside call the cops and tell them nobody answered her door. Please.

    •  Thank you as there is certainly a moral (0+ / 0-)

      imperative involved on my part.  i hate the system as it is, but being in a situation tht can endanger a child, then I Have to do something.

      As stated above I feel bad when the state gets involved but maybe there are relatives who will step in if they find an investigation is warranted.  If not, then maybe she will become more aware there are real dangers out in this world that little ones are exposed to.  From pediphilia to poison.  I will have done in good conscience to try and report neglect.   I do not want to.   I really do not want to but feel there is no other choice but get in touch with my vet friend who works with the county who knows the go to person.   She would probably come out and observe for herself before bringing in anyone.    

      Thank all of you..you did jar my memory of Darla ( the vet) and as far as my teenager...Well she will think next time before interrupting adults over her whims.   i want to assure you she has opinions and expresses them often when a situation regards something pertaining to her and listened to but she doesn't get to interfere with bill paying, people allowed or disallowed in the home, time outs and loss of privileges due to rude or disrespectful behavior.  She will have plenty of time for those kind of calls when she is on her own and responsible for her home and the liabilities.    Not before.
      I am southern and strange as it may seem, we still deem a lot of sourthern tradition of manners and respect.    Not that the North does not but we still emphasize the yes mam, no sir and please and thank you's.   It is our culture to be very respectful to elders especially parents whether you agree or not.  I still say Yes Mam and No Man to my elders and I am 62.
