I believe this is ABUSE! This poor child. I heard this last night on the 11 o'clock news. I haven't heard any updates about the little boy. The article alsy says that parents had moved down the hall into a different room but the little boy was left to stay in that nasty room. I still don't understand how this is neglect and NOT abuse!
