7 Signs Of An Emotionally Abusive Grandparent, According To Experts

They Are Manipulative

According to Adler, one sure sign of emotional abuse is manipulation. If your kids’ grandparent attempts to play on their emotions to get what they want — for example, telling them that they will feel sad if a child doesn’t give grandma a kiss — they’re attempting to manipulate a child for their own personal benefit.

Adler adds on wehavekids.org that it can be hard for adults to recognize coercion, and nearly impossible for kids to understand that they are being abused, which can lead to things like lowered self-esteem, confusion, and even psychosomatic illnesses and mental illness
