Child Abuse and Neglect
- COVID-19 lockdown left parents as the sole respondents for their children’s needs.
- We examine parents’ reports on the response their child received to their needs during the lockdown.
- Parents of older children reported less fulfillment of children’s needs.
- Societies must ensure pandemics do not create context for child neglect.
