Six Kinds of Emotional Abuse by Narcissistic Parents – The Minds Journal

Parents who use threats, yelling and cursing are doing serious psychological damage to their children. Singling out one child to criticize and punish or ridiculing her for displaying normal emotions is abusive. Threatening a child with harsh words, physical harm, abandonment or in extreme cases death is unacceptable. Even in jest, causing a child to be terrified by the use of threats and/or intimidating behavior is some of the worst emotional abuse. This includes witnessing, hearing or knowing that violence is taking place in the home.

  • excessive teasing
  • yelling, cursing and scaring
  • unpredictable and extreme responses to a child’s behavior
  • extreme verbal threats
  • raging, alternating with periods of warmth
  • threatening abandonment
  • berating family members in front of or in ear range of a child
  • threatening to destroy a favorite object
  • threatening to harm a beloved pet
  • forcing child to watch inhumane acts
  • inconsistent demands on the child
  • displaying inconsistent emotions
  • changing the “rules of the game”
  • threatening that the child is adopted or doesn’t belong
  • ridiculing a child in public
  • threatening to reveal intensely embarrassing traits to peers
  • threatening to kick an adolescent out of the house

  1. Well, let me clear my throat on this matter, as a single mother of two children I’m very strict on my children but not in an abusive or emotional abuse type way, yes I have a firm voice and set fear in them but fear to where they know I am the parent and they are the child. I scream and curse , I believe in tough discipline especially in this generation of youth children are so lost and don’t know their place as children.
