Sorry so late my computer was updating so it was out of commission for a day. But her is day 6 on the fight against verbal/emotional abuse. I’m going to make this one a bit short as I have to get kiddos to bed and myself for an early day tomorrow.
- Judging or rejecting their friends—labeling them and you
- Using punishments and rewards to manipulate and control them.
- Invading their privacy.
- Under-estimating them.
Examples: Mother commented on social media on a picture of son’s girlfriend and called her a lipstick whore.Mother comments to other sibling that older sibling hangs around druggies, and she has never met them.Mother is being ignored by step-daughter after making snide comments and mother then calls daughter and tells her she will fix her motorcycle or four-wheeler just for her and take her places till the daughter agrees and never follows through.Mother bribes son by telling him she will give him money every paycheck after he has refused to talk to her since she told him he was a disappointment to get him to talk to her.Mother reads daughters text messages, goes through phone calls, goes through tablets and interrogates because she doesn’t trust the child and what the child does.
This is not the way a child or any person should be treated. And I say again and again, help fight against verbal/emotional abuse. NOBODY deserves to be the doormat.
