adequate food, clothing and shelter (including exclusion from home or abandonment)

Protect

a child from physical and emotional harm or danger

Ensure

adequate supervision (including the use of inadequate care-givers)

.’

 

(HM Government,

Working Together to Safeguard Children,

2013)

Slide3

WHAT IS NEGLECT? (Children and Young People)

 

Not enough love

Parents and step-parents not spending time with me

Parents and step-parents having no interest in me

Not being able to confide in my mum or dad

Having to look after brothers and sisters – you end up doing your parents’ job, the responsibility is passed to you

Parents have no interest in school or going to parent’s nights; not helping with homework

Parents have no control

Parents neglect themselves

The parent can’t care – they may be stressed from moving around a lot

Messy hair and clothes – you get judged for your appearance

It’s one thing to say they love you but they have to do things to show it

There are no guidelines for parenting

Love is a doing

word

(Action on Neglect, 2013)

Why

do we struggle to identify and respond to neglect of older children?

Slide6

Neglect can be

harder to evidence than more active forms of abuse.

Neglect

can be

seen as requiring less immediate

action.

 

Parenting can be

neglectful

at some times and not

others.

 

The

impact of neglect

can become evident over time.

 

Thresholds can be difficult to define.

 

Age-related

factors.

 

The needs of older

children who are hard to help

can seem

overwhelming.

CHILDREN EXPERIENCING NEGLECT IN THE UK

In 41% of cases, the main

initial reason for being the subject of a child protection

plan

in March 2013. (DoE 2013

).

Almost

a quarter of

these cases were between

the ages of

10 and 15

years.

In

extreme cases, life is placed at risk, with approximately a quarter of all SCRs focusing on teenagers as victims, of whom 10% are aged 16 years or over (Rees et al 2011).

 

Evidence from

an

NSPCC

prevalence study that directly asked children and young adults about their experiences suggested that one in ten children may be experiencing some form of neglect

(Radford

et al., 2011).

CHALLENGES IN DEFINING AND ASSESSING NEGLECT OF OLDER CHILDREN

Achieving consistency

Omission and commission

Cognitive-behavioural

: Poor school performance; low overall intelligence levels, low achievement scores and difficulty with problem-solving; academic failure; lack coping and

problem-solving skills.

Socio-emotional

:

Heavy alcohol and drug use; more likely to have attempted suicide; appear apathetic and indifferent to identity; serious social and personal difficulties.

 

Physical:

The effects of neglect may continue from childhood; experiencing neglect and physical abuse and neglect together increases the risk of parenthood in both sexes in

adolescence.

and

Connell-Carrick, 2005
