child abuse or neglect?
Is it child abuse or neglect to leave a child in a wet diaper long enough to give him a bad rash with blisters?
Maybe. Maybe not.

If you suspect there's a possible neglect or abuse situation, you're morally obligated to report it to the appropriate agency. In some situations, you may be required by law to make the report.
If you need help finding the agency, post the state and someone here will get you the contact info. It should be as easy as a quick Google search though. "(state) child abuse hotline"....
How bad is your rash or blisters?
