Can the state call my actions NEGLECT when my child RAN AWAY?
Response: No. Also, your child did the same thing to your mother. Neglect is when you fail to provide support for the child or to protect the child. Utah Administrative Code Rule 512-80 defines neglect as
" (21) "Neglect" is as defined in Section 78A-6-105. It includes but is not limited to abandonment, educational neglect, environmental neglect, failure to protect, failure to thrive, medical neglect, non-supervision, physical neglect, and sibling at risk." See Utah Code Section 78A-6-105.
