What is abuse and neglect?
A parent commits an act of child abuse and neglect by injuring the child (or allowing the child to be injured), creates or allows to be created substantial or ongoing risk of physical injury, sexually abuses the child, or willfully abandons a child. Abuse can include head injuries, internal injuries, burns, poison, wounds, bone fractures, human bites, sprains, dislocations and torture. Neglect can include inadequate supervision, shelter, food, clothing, medical neglect, malnutrition and failure to thrive.
