Negligent Parent Assessment

Is this parent neglecting their child?

Neglect is the most common type of child abuse, but the least reported. Because neglect usually leaves no visible scars, it is more likely to go undetected. Neglect occurs when a child's caregiver does not provide for basic needs, such as food, clothing, shelter, medical care, or supervision. Neglect includes failing to provide a safe environment, unsanitary or hazardous living conditions, leaving a young child unattended to go to work or other activities. Because neglect happens repeatedly, neglected children may grow up believing this is a normal way of life and will continue the cycle in their own families. If you are concerned about the actions or attitudes of a child's parent, and have concerns that the child may be a victim of neglect, take this quick assessment to learn more about the warning signs negligent parents often display. Educators are usually the best at detecting negligence because they interact with the child and the parent(s).
