Anonymous Call Draws Social Worker

DELAND—When an HSLDA member in Deland stepped inside a store, leaving her 10 year old in their locked van to watch their 1 and 3 year old, an anonymous caller turned the family in to social services. This resulted in a social worker demanding to enter the home and see the children. HSLDA persuaded the social worker to resolve the investigation with a simple visit at the front door where the children were easily observed without being interrogated.
