What is neglect?
Neglect is the failure of a parent or guardian to provide a child’s basic needs, including food, shelter, clothing, medical care, education, and emotional support.
It can manifest in various forms such as physical neglect, emotional neglect, medical neglect, and educational neglect.

The effects of neglect on a child’s life can be profound and long-lasting. Neglect can lead to physical health problems, developmental delays, poor academic performance, social difficulties, low self-esteem, and mental health issues like anxiety and depression.

It can also affect the child’s ability to form healthy relationships and trust others. In severe cases, neglect can even result in death or serious injury.

Early intervention and support are crucial to mitigate the impact of neglect and help children develop into healthy and well-adjusted adults.
