Does a distinct red hand print left on a child more than 48 hours later constitute child abuse - a medically normal child of 4?

Q:  Hand print was left by maternal grandfather.

A: David's Answer:  It seems like it's indicative of child neglect (excessive corporal punishment). You may wish to take the child into a Doctor just to get checked as a Doctor is a mandated reporter of child abuse. If there's a custody issue it's always better that the report be called in by a neutral party such as a Doctor. Schedule a consult with a Child Custody lawyer in your area.  -- David Bliven, Westchester Family Law attorney (
