Mental abuse is more common with children than physical abuse... Parents are usually not charged with it because it is REALLY difficult to prove...

Words do hurt and I think sometimes we forget that. Some people could be very honest and say what's on their mind but we need to keep in mind that what we say may cause pain to someone else. I'm sure we don't want to be called out of our names!

Words can be just as painful as adults. We are just better at covering it up. Who among us was not told something as a child that we still carry with us today?

when a person calls names to an adult or a child it can hurt and cause permanent mental damage you never know where a person state of mind is at and how they will handle certain situation.

I think that this picture is more than just about words. There is a line between being told something once and it sticking with you the rest of your life and literally being broken down to where you think you are literally incompetent of doing anything... And at that point it is mental abuse .....

If someone chooses to say anything that isnt good just say it inside your head. or just not at all. the world would be so much easier.

Jeff (Phoenix HUM/114) This is very true! Children are like sponges and when a parent or even friends verbally abuse a child it scars them for life. I hear so many people say "I would never lay a hand on my child" and then turn right around and give them a tongue lashing, making the poor child feel horrible. Words are sometimes more powerful then the fist and parents need to critically think about the their actions towards their children and the ramifications verbal abuse will leave on a growing child.

This picture is hearbreaking. It definitely made me tear up. It is something that is so true and especially among children.

This doesn't just apply to children, it aplies to everyone. Everyone has been bullied at one time or another (by coworkers, kids at school, siblings...)- and this is what it reduces us to. It's an awful to imagine how widespread this is now that kids(and adults alike) have social media to push their sick agendas.

Have your heard the expression "One I hate you cancels out a thousand I love yous?" I believe this is right. Verbally abusing a child or anyone in particular can leave an emotional scar and can cause more effect than physical abuse. I don't understand how some people can say the meanest things to their children and not expect for them to grow up with self esteem issues.

This to me is worst than physical abuse. Words leave an emotional scar and tend to stay with someone for a long time. Self esteem issues arise with children because they think that what has been said to them is true. Trying to get past it proves to be difficult.

As kids we used to say "sticks and stones will break my bones but words will never hurt me." When really words can hurt someone enough for them to commit suicide or take someone's life. We are having this issue in our schools today with kids being bullies.

Mental and Emotion abuse can be just as damaging as physical abuse. The saying that words can never hurt you is so far from true. If someone hears something enough they will start to believe it to be true even if it is the opposite of true.

This is a really disturbingly true picture.

This is sad. In a way, this picture can show moth mental and physical abuse. The hand is made of words but is still a hand. Its a shame we cant protect all children.

This could not be more spot on. Everyone needs to think more before they speak! Especially to young children. Our actions shape their future in an instant.
