This federally funded 5-minute videotape recording is part of a training series designed to raise public awareness and understanding of child maltreatment, its causes, protective factors that help shield children and families, and manageable steps that everyone can take to help reduce the likelihood of child neglect. This first video provides an overview of child neglect, types of neglect, including physical neglect, medical neglect, educational neglect, and emotional neglect, and factors that influence how parents take care of their children. The video features parents who at one point had their children removed because of neglect discussing child neglect issues and prevention. The need for parental education about neglect is emphasized.
