One is considered an unfit parent under the law if they endanger the life of a child or if one completely neglects the welfare of that child. One may also be considered unfit as a parent if they abuse the child or expose the child to abuse. In addition to that, if a child lives in a home which is in shambles, the parents may be considered unfit as parents.
