Don't Neglect the Signs of Neglect in Young Children

More children suffer from neglect in the United States than from physical and sexual abuse combined, although neglect receives significantly less attention. The National Child Abuse and Neglect Data System (NCANDS) found that among children who experienced maltreatment or abuse in 2013, 78 percent also suffered neglect. The age group that experiences the highest rates of neglect is zero to three years old, and in 2012, 49 states reported a total of 1,593 child fatalities due to abuse and neglect.
