Florida. Stat. Ann. § V-39.6625 provides that neglect is defined broadly as lack of care (food, shelter, medical care), while Fla. Stat. Ann. § V-39.6225 specifies that leaving a child without adult supervision or arrangement appropriate for the child’s age or mental or physical condition, so that the child is unable to care for the child’s own needs or another’s basic needs or is unable to exercise good judgment in responding to any kind of physical or emotional crisis. By focusing on the child’s capabilities, Florida’s law is better suited to allowing children independence than the law of many states. Significantly, the Florida child welfare policy manual also contains reasonable language recognizing that lack of supervision depends on an assessment of the child’s age, maturity, developmental level or mental or physical condition.
