Laws defining and prohibiting child abuse get more numerous all the time. Parents and guardians may face child abuse charges if they do not provide clothing, shelter, food, supervision and medical care. Mistreatment of a child in any way can lead to an accusation of child neglect or abuse. Laws concerning the safety of children may forbid a large number of activities which might jeopardize the safety or emotional well-being of a child. Child Protective Services are quick to respond to any report of suspected abuse, neglect or endangerment. With the help of hysterical media reporting, the public has become very sensitized to any possibility that a child might be mistreated.
