Charlie, Denise and Brooke

Children Services Tries to Mediate Custody WAR

EXCLUSIVE

Brooke Mueller and Denise Richards are locked in a conference room right now ... as officials from the L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services try to force a truce in their war over Bob and Max ... but Charlie Sheen was a no-show.

Sources connected with the warring families tell TMZ -- Dr. Charles Sophy, the Medical Director for DCFS -- called the meeting and wants Denise, Brooke and Charlie to come face-to-face to deal with what has become a child-rearing crisis.

You may remember Dr. Sophy -- he's a highly-respected shrink who was a key player in the Michael Jackson molestation trial in 2005. 

We're told Charlie was invited but didn't attend -- we don't know why.

The goal of the meeting -- to figure out a custody arrangement that keeps Denise in the picture and gives Brooke sufficient parental rights.

As we first reported ... Denise feels that she can't continue on as the temporary guardian of the troubled twins with Brooke constantly blocking her ability to seek treatment for some serious psychological problems the twins are experiencing.

my 2 cents    

Dr. Sophy also appeared on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills - counseling Taylor and Russell Armstrong.

wow, i thought charlie was ever so concerned? lol apparently not enough to show up to this very important meeting....
i think denise has done above and beyond what was expected of her.... she really has no business raising charlie and brooke's kids, and certainly not at the expense of her own children's welfare and safety...

The best decision would be for Charlie to show restraint and NOT show up in person to add more fuel to the fire, but to be in attendance via phone/video conference.

He has no respect for Children's services dept., and I can hardly blame him. A blind person could see Brooke should not get back custody.

Why would Charlie be there in prison? He's not allowed near Brooke. You know that TMZ. WHY even ask? Morons.

"I'm not a morning person..."

@(Charlie's excuse for bailing, that or "I had 120 pages to learn for a show I'm carrying.")

It's nice that Charlie's acting like an adult and not showing up for something that might (legally, anyway) put everyone on the same page for the care of the kids.

If those of us who can't stomach our exes had to show up and make nicey for the sake of our kids with mediators who are easily swayed by narcissistic bullcrap and lies, then so can Charlie.
