Korskrogen year 36-39, Monday to Thursday

Max Johansson, Livia’s illegitimate son, is coming home from his first day of school, looking very happy. He liked school, and brought a friend home, too.



The next day, he’s coming home with a friend again, to an empty house. His mother forgor to order a babysitter for him, and her, Max's uncle and aunt are all at work at 3 PM. 
Luckily, Max is a big boy, used to solve his own problems, so he calls the nanny himself. Because cooking he doesn’t know, and he wants dinner!



There are definitely advantages with the adults not being at home…



The infamous mother comes home without a job, because she tried to make her own mascot career. Damn chance cards.



Uncle Daniel greets his wife Sofie, but his mind is elsewhere. He wish he was back in the tub with whatever-her-name-is. Or that he could get more skills to be promoted.



Livia has another flirt going, with Edward Djärv. She’s hopeless.



And Max’s grades are going down. School is not so fun anymore.



Sofie gets promoted to Field Sales Representative and gains 3000 p.



Max’s grades are even worse, he didn’t have time to catch up on his homework. His mother is working on her new lover in the hottub.



“I’m from the Social Services of Mattsmyra. I’m here to pick up little Max.” says the Social Lady.
“Please, maybe me and my husband could take care of him, his mother is going through a rough time at the moment” says Sofie
“We’ll see about that. I’m bringing him with me for now. You can apply for custody later, and you might get him if we find you suitable for bringing up the child.”



And off he goes, on the 21st of April ’39. -1p :(



Livia does actually react slightly to her loosing her son.



She even cries a bit.



Standing in his empty room that evening, she cries a little bit more. She seems to have a heart after all.



Sofie starts the fight for custody of her husband’s nephew right away, she knows how it feels to loose a child...


Korskrogen after round 10:
Daniel Johansson
Sofie Johansson
Livia Johansson

I believe social service have a zero tolerance policy for leaving schoolkids alone - even if it is only for a short time, they will show up some days after (I once had them show up after the child had aged up to teen!).

(But letting babies stew in their own poo for days is perfectly fine...)

I was surprised that she came so quickly. He DID have bad grades, but usually there is more than one warning. Maybe the leaving-alone was considered the first warning.

I haven't had a kid taken by social services for ages!

That's just terrible. I have only ever seen the social worker when she comes to drop off adoptions. I hardly ever have nannies, as I tend to juggle jobs around children. I shall certainly be more aware now though. He was only alone for minutes, so it does seem a bit harsh of them. Good luck to Sofie in getting custody.

It's the slipping grades that are dangerous. If the kid goes below 2 (I would guess D in English) the Social worker comes.

I think they should care more about if the kid is fed, than what their grades are, but I guess that's only me...

Oh no! Not Max...poor kid. I hope Sophie gets him back. Although he'll lose all memories of being Ricky and Livia's son. :(

That is so sad that Livia lost Max! At least he will end up in a nice home. =(

I actually get touched myself by this chapter, every time I read it. It's very rare to lose a child to Social Services
