Reporting Child Neglect NC
Physicians and medical centers have a responsibility to report child abuse or neglect. Sometimes child abuse isn't as clear as broken bones and burns like in Caine's felony case.

Children who excel in school and maintain above average grades may be suffering emotional and psychological abuse at home where they could be pressured to maintain high test scores.
