Abuse and Neglect Charges For Mom Near Charlotte, NC
A woman engaged to a disabled man and a mother of two young children was charged with unlawful conduct toward a child, and abuse or neglect of a vulnerable adult.
The woman’s 40-year-old fiancée developed injuries due to her neglect, which included bed sores and a “moldy catheter.” The bedridden man suffers from diabetes, a vision impairment and MS, according to local news reports. As for the woman’s two children, the counts were made based on the filthy living conditions she failed to clean. The unsanitary living conditions were full of animal feces, insects and layers of garbage.
Child neglect over prolonged periods of time can affect the child for the rest of their life. The stress of being unable to cope with home life triggers changes in hormones and alters brain development. According to the CDC, toxic stress in early childhood triggers:
- Misconnections in brain development. As an adult, these children will experience over-reactions to stressful experiences.
- Memory ability impaired. This will make it difficult for children to learn as they become adults, and harder for them retain information in adulthood.
- Weak immune systems. When children get older they could be at higher risk for infections and chronic health problems.
