Emotional Abuse

Any attitude or behavior that interferes with a child's mental health or social development can be considered emotional abuse, including yelling, name-calling, shaming, negative comparisons to others, labeling as "bad" or "worthless." Emotional abuse also includes the failure to provide the affection and support necessary for the development of a child's emotional, social, physical, and intellectual well-being. This includes ignoring, lack of appropriate physical affection, not saying "I love you," withdrawal of attention, lack of praise, and lack of positive reinforcement.
