You do not "force to let" because that makes no sense. The police can compel you to, or remove the child from your care in order to interview the child, especially if the child is witnessing aggravated domestic issues.

Anyone has the right to remain silent. Remember, no matter what you say it will be twisted around and used against you later.

No, the police cannot force anyone to talk to them. They can get a warrant for various things but cannot force you or anyone to talk to them.
