Definitions of Abuse & Neglect
What is Abuse?
Abuse is mental, emotional, physical, or sexual injury to a child or failure to prevent such injury to a child.
What is Neglect?
Neglect includes (1) failure to provide a child with food, clothing, shelter and/or medical care; and/or (2) leaving a child in a situation where the child is at risk of harm.
These are basic definitions. Section 261.001 of the Texas Family Code defines abuse and neglect in its entirety.
