Neglect.

Neglect is when a child’s basic needs are persistently not met by their parent or guardian.

These basic needs include:

  • Adequate food, clothing and shelter.
  • Protection against both physical and emotional harm or danger.
  • A good amount of supervision. For example, not leaving the child home alone.
  • Providing a child with access to appropriate medical care. For instance, dental treatment.
