#changeneglectlaw and the queens speech

It is encouraging to see that the so-called ‘Cinderella law’ has made it into the queen’s speech. Hopefully this shows a move towards taking children’s emotional needs seriously. If neglect is described as “persistent failure to meet a child’s basic physical and/or psychological needs” surely that would apply to a six-year-old raised in an institution without physical affection and parental nurture? http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-27693587
