Oregon Revised Statutes 163.545 makes it a crime to allow a child under 10 to be unattended for such time as will endanger them.
Oregon Revised Statutes, Volume 10 §34 Chapters 419A-C, which is Oregon’s juvenile court act, does not have a neglect definition, but its administrative code does include failure to provide adequate supervision. CPS Rule 12.

When in doubt, consult your local authorities to confirm the laws where you live. What’s more, laws change, as do judicial interpretations of them, and this webpage may not be updated immediately.
Right now, most states’ neglect laws are incredibly open-ended. They say things like, “Parent must provide proper supervision.” We agree! But people have different ideas of what that entails. Select a state below to learn more about their laws, policies and how Let Grow is helping.
