You Should Prepare a Brag Sheet
Hi. CACI lawyer Tate Lounsbery here with another CACI quick tip for you.
I recommend that you prepare a brag sheet. What I mean by that is, I’m sure you are a wonderful person. I’m sure there are just thousands of reasons that make you a good person, or a good aunt, or a good parent, or uncle, or grandparent, and you want to write those down. You want to know what evidence is there that you are a wonderful person.
A lot of people have a hard time bragging about themselves, right? That’s understandable. If you have a hard time thinking about all the different things that make you a great person, you might talk to friends or family members and get some ideas.
For example, maybe you go to church every Sunday, or maybe you sponsor a child in Ethiopia, or maybe you are the only person who takes care of your sick grandmother, or maybe you volunteered at the boys and girls club, or you volunteer at a homeless shelter on Thanksgivings, during Thanksgivings. I don’t know.
I’m sure there are lots of reasons that you could come up with to show that you are a really good person, a kind-hearted individual. You take care of other people’s children when they need it in cases of emergency. Or maybe you’re the only person at work that your boss trusts with the key to the store, for example. Whatever it is that you can write down to show the type of person that you are.
This can be important in cases where what CPS is alleging that you are is something that’s really bad, something that most people would not want to fess up to. Right? Really bad conduct.
Maybe you are an excellent parent. Write down evidence. Write down things that we could point to to say, “Here’s some really good things that show that this is a really good parent or a really good person.” That could come in helpful in your CACI grievance hearing, your Child Abuse Central Index grievance hearing.
That is your CACI quick tip for the day. I hope you found it helpful.
