Both perspecticide and emotional and psychological invalidation is considered to be abuse. When parents do it to children, it falls under two umbrellas: child abuse and child neglect.
The problem for children, especially, is that for many abusive parents, they invalidate one child little by little, like chiseling away at the child, until the whole child is invalidated (rejected). I discuss this later in the post.
