Child neglect encompasses several areas:
Perhaps my question was too vague and I needed to give you bit more information. The Mother lives in MI with her son. The Father lives in PA - with a visitation schedule. The boy (my nephew) was on Christmas break with his Dad and driving back from FL and planning on taking a flight from Charlotte NC on Jan. 1st (today) back home to his Mom in MI.
The Mom had no idea her son would be sleeping in a car overnight, nor did she know that the Dad would take her son to a concert starting at 9pm called (Widespread Panic) in Charlotte, NC. He was not physically harmed and I know taking a child to an inappropriate music event on New Years Eve is definitely bad judgement. However, I just wanted your insight to know if this action with no knowledge by the Mother has any possible legal implications or is it simply just bad parenting?
Thanks. Sorry for not being clear before.
