when parents don´t pay attention to their kids, leaving them most of their time on their own. The kids are being neglected. What I want to know is the name of the crime, it´s not child abuse because there is no violence, right?

abandonment


Explanation:
Another new federal law, the Adoption and Safe Families Act of 1997 (ASFA), makes the question even more urgent. This act reduces the time allowed before the state must start proceedings to terminate the rights of parents with children in foster care and make the children eligible for adoption. The law is intended to end the "foster care drift" that leaves children moving from one short-term placement to another for years -- a worthy goal for many children, especially those who have endured severe abuse or abandonment and will likely never be able to return home safely. But for children whose families are thrown into crisis by the loss of welfare benefits, these new time lines may mean a permanent severance from their parents that could have been prevented.
