Default What is it?

I don't know what counts as verbal abuse, I never really thought of it until today, but then my dad started, I don't know if what he says counts as abuse but it certainly feels like it! I feel so small after hearing him. I'm scared of him and i don't get scared very easily, I've dealt with death, pain and a lot of hospitals and yet my parents are the ones that affect me the most, anyway what i am trying to ask is, what constitutes as verbal abuse?

I think it means being spoken to --- in a way that is detrimental to the emotional well being of a PERSON....

I still feel bad when my dad puts me down, he does it automatically.. since i was 5. verbal abuse ? anything that makes you feel less than you are .. can be many ways too.maybe he is angry with himself, taking it out on you.. and the people he loves. Its tough to be 14 ! i hope you just be strong.
