Thesis Statement About Child Abuse And Neglect
It is probably rare for a parent to know precisely what all the needs of a child are at a particular time in its development and to know that these are not being supplied.
Neglect is thus much more common than abuse and directly related to the education and awareness of the caretaker.
We suggest that this unequivocal definition of neglect be embodied in learned texts and legislative instruments.
As such, it is a non-deliberate failure to provide the child’s needs by the responsible person.
This definition explicitly excludes abuse, which is always an act of commission.
Education of the mother and society and relief from the vicissitudes of poverty are required to alleviate most neglect of the world’s children.
Most think about abuse and neglect as if they go together.
