Cops, DCF Respond To Report Of Dad Yelling At Daughter


UPDATE: Police confirm it may not be great parenting but certainly is not a crime to yell at a child. Police and DCF, by protocol, respond to all reports of alleged child abuse — that is why a police report was generated for this incident.
BOCA RATON, FL ( — It’s unclear how this led to police and DCF involvement, but both responded to a home in the 400 block of Ashwood Place — near FAU — after reports of a dad yelling at his daughter.
According to a police report, a 14 year old girl was the subject of the yelling. The father apparently told her that she will “never amount to anything.”
Aside from crushing her hopes and dreams, we don’t know what criminal statute this may have violated. It was logged as “child neglect, non-assaultive” in public records.
