Child Abuse Issues in Houston

Child abuse can take many forms, from neglecting to provide a child with necessaries of life, including food, clothing, and shelter, to intentionally directing acts of violence against a child. When this occurs, Texas laws require persons who occupy a position of responsibility for child to report acts of child abuse to law enforcement agencies, such as Child Protective Services or the police.

The following acts constitute child abuse:

  • Refusing to provide a child with necessary medical treatment
  • Starving a child
  • Physically attacking a child
  • Sexually molesting a child
  • Leaving a child unattended for unreasonable amounts of time

The law allows children who have been subjected to various forms of abuse to be removed from dangerous environments. If a child’s well-being is endangered, they can be placed with a responsible party such as with another parent, or extended family members.
