Implications for practice

Careful observation and documentation of the parent-child interactions is an essential element in the recognition of the emotionally abused / neglected pre-school child
 
It is a significant omission from the scientific literature that no studies have been conducted on neglect / emotional abuse between fathers and young children
 
When evaluating children for possible neglect / emotional abuse, it is essential to obtain detailed reports from all those working with the family, including nursery nurses, health visitors, playschool teachers, etc
 
It is important to determine the child’s perception and expectations of their parents and what the parents view of their child is
