Jump through those hoops for your babies!!
sometimes a social worker might have an idea of what they would like to do with a case, communicate what they believe could happen to their client, and then come back to their office and have their supervisor tell them that a completely different thing needs to happen. like in your case, maybe the social worker, after meeting with you, felt like three months would be fine, then reported back to their supervisor, who told the sw that the case needs to stay open longer. then the sw has to go back and be the one to relay the message that the plan has changed, thus confusing everyone and making the sw look like a douche. this has happened to me many many times. :-/ i think that the sws have the benefit of meeting with the clients and getting a feel for what is going on, while supervisors just read about things on paper and hear about it second hand, and tend to be a little more strict and need that extra reassurance. everything always looks worse on paper. i wouldnt stress about it too much as long as you are complying with the dv classes and following whatever recommendation cps has given you for visits with the kids dad. i understand that you feel tricked and that is unfortunate and probably could have been avoided if your sw had communicated things with you a little better.
what county are you in btw?
