Roediger explains that child neglect is the simple absence of an adult in the child’s life.

The other eighteen percent of maltreatment is a combination of physical abuse, emotional abuse, sexual abuse, and psychological abuse.
The Community Support Network meeting is April 2 at the Madelyn Helling Library Gene Albaugh Community Room from 3:30 PM to 5 PM.
