While the world continues to climb out of COVID-19 pandemic abuse and neglect continue and for some it’s on the rise.
What is the definition of neglect?
The very definition of neglect is “a type of maltreatment that refers to the failure by the caregiver to provide needed, age-appropriate care although financially able to do so.”
There are four types of child neglect:
- Physical neglect – This is the most common type of neglect. For example, when a child is not provided basic necessities such as food, clothing, and shelter. Another example is when young children are left alone unsupervised.
- Emotional neglect – This is where a child is isolated, rejected, ignored, or even threatened. A child is not provided with the emotional support that they require.
- Educational neglect – This is where a child is denied an education by the parents/caregivers not bringing the children to school, not enrolling them in school, or not homeschooling them.
- Medical neglect – This is where a child is denied healthcare by his/her parents or caregivers even though the parents and/or caregivers can afford it.
What is the charge when arrested for child neglect?
Neglect of a child as a criminal offense is a felony. A person facing child neglect charges, could face jail time, fines, probation, or lose their parental rights to the child.
