Neglect: In the words of a parent

Jan 27, 2012, 09:36 AM

When Mary’s son Bob was two years old, she began neglecting him. After the death of a loved one and a relationship breakup Mary began drinking heavily and caring for Bob became less of a priority. She started putting him to bed abnormally early, leaving him in front of the television or sometimes on his on in dangerous situations.

Action for Children helped Mary get her life back on track and reconnect with Bob as a caring responsible mother. Now, years later they are thriving and Mary wants to help other parents and children avoid the same situation. This is neglect through their eyes… #addiction #charity #children #families #Neglect
