Action for Children Charity have created a campaign to urge you to ask your MP to sign a letter, updating the current 80 year old law on Child Neglect. The current law does not include emotional neglect, however, as many as 1 in 10 children suffer from emotional neglect today. So, it is clear that the law needs to be updated.
I have written to my local MP and newspaper and I have urged them to ask the Government to look at this piece of law and update the current law on child neglect to include emotional neglect. Please do the same, thank you
