At what point does it become child abuse or neglect?
Just to get the ball rolling let's consider a few scenarios
A child whose hair gets really tangled and looks really unkept even although she was bathed yesterday and had their hair washed with shampoo and then conditioner used. They then go out with messy hair because the child screams "blue murder" if you try to go near them with a brush?
The parent who smokes while holding their toddler
The mum who sits on the sofa all day, and leaves the tv on to entertain the child(the child is "supervised" and toys are available)
I could think of many more but am sure this is enough to get the ball rolling.
