What is child endangerment?

    CPS or the courts will usually seek a child endangerment charge if the parents or guardians fail to affect normal safety standards and guidelines for the children living with them. If the child is left unattended or placed in a situation where harm or injury could occur then this can be deemed child endangerment. It isn't so much of what the custodial overseers of the children are doing as much as what they are not doing. People who drink to excess or use drugs to excess and then allow their children to basically run unsupervised is a pretty common example of child endangerment.

    Same as any other form of endangerment, just when a child is in danger.
