If I wanted to say, " Her parents look after her badly."

Would this be the correct usage in French?

"Ses parents prennent soin mal de lui."

    Presque ! La bonne syntaxe est : Ses parents prennent mal soin d'elle. (her refers to a female child)

    Plus naturel mais à vérifier en fonction du contexte : Ils ne s'occupent pas bien d'elle.
