Dear Teentalker,

Thanks for writing to us. I can understand how abusive and sad you feel at this.

Unfortunately, the psychological damage from emotional/verbal abuse can be lifelong. The abuse damages a child's soul, erodes self esteem and fosters hatred and fear. Children depend on parental "mirroring," that is, feedback from others, to develop a self image of who they are. Verbally abusive parents convey that the child is bad, stupid, and worse.

React out for a help with significant others in your family. Do emphasize how damaging verbal or mental.....
