Abstract In this paper we want to attract the attention of parents, guardians and teachers, what effects they may produce on children, inappropriate manifestations of adults regarding neglect or abuse on children. „Neglect is a silent and merciless killing of the human spirit „ (Daro and McCarth, 1991). The forms of ill-treatment which fail to ensure biological needs may endanger their physical, emotional, cognitive and social development that fall into the category of neglect. When we talk about neglect, we believe that the person responsible for the child (children) omits gestures necessary for proper development of the child. Neglect can be episodic or chronic, the first being less serious, calling it a contextual, it disappears when the risk factors that led to the neglect disappear (divorce). The second is dramatic because it affects disadvantaged families which do not have the resources (material, emotional, intellectual, etc.). In this case there is the phenomenon of intergenerational transmission, placing a child as a result of serious neglect does not solve the problem, they remain with serious complications in adulthood. Physical neglect leads to the underdevelopment of children (malnutrition and mental underdevelopment). Then, if the child does not have adequate food, clothing, shelter, supervision and protection, affection, raising brothers in a pyramidal form, etc. ; both physical and mental birth and maturity malformations will appear proceed, and in adulthood he will proceed the same , as he was brought up. Cultural, emotional or abandonment depression, are just some of the forms of neglect. Some may be intentional (alcoholic parents, mentally ill, jealousy, physical maltreatment) or others unintended (work overtime, lack of affectivity due to parental absence). All lead to the neglect of children. By this warning, we want to be better, to take care of our children, to be affective and give all you can for a good education.
