Child neglect is one of the commonest forms of child maltreatment involving the parent or the caregiver not providing for the child under his care with the necessities such as the basic needs of nutrition, housing, health or education. Neglect may also be present in the form where the parent or the caregiver fails to do their duty to prevent any risks of harm to the child. There are several types of child neglect: emotional neglect, inadequate supervision, physical neglect, medical neglect, environmental and educational neglect.
