5 thoughts on “Is Verbal and Emotional Abuse Harder to Prove?”

  1. so very sad brandy. I was both emotionally and physically abused as a child and I think the emotional abuse last longer. Its the scars on our minds that hurt the most while bruises may fade they still leave scars 🙁 hugs to you

  2. It is terrible that adults abuse children. I never understood why a grown person would pick on a defenseless child but unfortunately it happens all of the time in this world. Bruises go away (not saying this is acceptable by any means) but verbal and emotional abuse stay with you forever which is very hard to shake.

  3. I think that both children show signs of abuse…when a child is acting out, there is usually a reason why. It’s much better to ask them what’s wrong than just assume it’s puberty, etc. I also think that emotional and verbal abuse leaves longer lasting scars than physical ones.

  4. So sad, I wish I could wave a magic wand and make all abuse vanish. Abuse really poisons families for generations.
