What would you like to do?
It is always admirable for any person who believes a child is being abused to take steps to correct the situation. However, 'stepping in' to such a stituation is most definitely not advisable as such actions regardless of how well meaning sometimes create a more hostile environment for all the parties involved. Foster parent classes are an option, but no guarantee that the concerned individual will be placed in that position if the circumstances arise. One suggestion would be for the concerned individual to discuss the specifics of the situation with a social worker, clergy member, counselor, etc. who is qualified and experienced in domestic/child abuse matters before taking any other action.

What steps can you take to make sure a verbally emotional abuser who refuses to leave gets help no matter what his reaction may be when you confront him?
My ex husband refused to leave all the time. Then one day I looked at him and said get out and that was that. Call the Police ahead of time, even if he has never gotten physic…ally violent. Better to have the Police show up to nothing than put yourself at risk. Once you know the Police are on there way, tell him to get out. Stand in the yard and tell him this. I told mine out in our front yard so he couldn't corner me. Then once hes gone, change your locks, the same day. Then change your phone number. Protect yourself. Good luck.
What steps can you take to protect yourself against a verbally abusive parent since there are currently no laws regarding verbal abuse and you know that just leaving won't solve the problem?
Answer If you are a minor, you can privately go to a lawyer and discuss your situation and what options you may have. If you feel you cannot take …legal steps, the best thing to do is to start preparing for the future you can make. Get as good of grades in school as possible, take both the SAT and ACT. Ask a guidance counselor at school to assist you with applying for grants and scholarships for college. If possible, get a part time job and save as much of the money as possible. Start being realistic about plans after high school, either getting a full time job after graduating and moving out, or getting into a college. When you move out of your family's home, you will feel a lot less stress if you basically limit your contact with this parent, even to the point of not visiting them. Don't turn to drugs. Confide in a friend or an outside adult about what is occuring. Attempt to avoid arguing with your parent as much as you can, even to the point of not being in the same room with them for long periods of time. Don't yell back, just walk out of the room--the emotional abuser needs an audience and often feeds off of your reaction. Take care of yourself.
If protective services takes a 16-year-old girl from an abusive home can she move in with her boyfriend's parents instead of a family member or a foster house in the state of Michigan?
What should you do when you have been with a guy for a year now and the verbal abuse is getting worse and he says it is just fun but it is at your expense?
Where Verbal Abuse Leads I think the key words here are "getting worse," "fun," and "my expense." First of all, since when is it ever fun to abuse someone verbal…ly? Believe me, that is a problem caused by the way he views himself, some inner conflict, or other problem that HE HAS. I doubt that it is going to do anything but get worse. At your expense? Let me ask you how his verbal abuse makes you feel? On the other hand, let me guess, and I'll bet if I'm not right on I'm extremely close. You've only been together for a year, so you are probably still in the phase of being extremely hurt and you probably cry a lot. You are confused as to how this guy can talk to you like he does. You long for him to stop and talk to you with respect. His verbal abuse tears you down deep inside and makes you feel horrible about your situation and yourself. The fact that he thinks "it's just fun" tells me that he is not going to stop, so here is where it can lead: You will become resentful and bitter. While you may love the guy now, the love will be replaced with an acceptance that this is just the way the guy is and it'll make you angry. At the greatest extreme, you will end up not caring about the guy at all. My advice? Leave the guy - NOW! ~Deb
It is all a matter of opinion. In terms of technology, it is getting better. In terms of society, that is debatable. There seems to be a lot of moral decay, but then each …generation has been saying that since the dawning of civilization.

Worse. The amount of fishing is related to the size of the global human population. While this continues to grow, all environmental problems are going to get worse not better.…

Answer: Whenever we recall the times gone by, we always refer to it as good old days. Does it mean the times we lived in before had been better than the times we are living i…n now? If it were not so, then why must one recall the 'good old days' with a certain feelings of nostalgia. It only means that though we have everything that we did not have in good old days still we are not happy. The happiness matters the most. A rich man, despite all his possessions might not be as happy as a poor man who lives in the conditions of want day in and day out. Those who are chasing worldly comfort think that the world is getting worse. It is because they are not satisfied with everything they have. Whereas a man with little or nothing might think that, the world is getting better because he is satisfied with little or nothing he has. Much depends on your perception as to how you are viewing your world. --------------------------------------------------------------- Worse. Environmental problems are related to the size of the global human population. While this continues to grow, all environmental problems are going to get worse not better.
In World War 1
Stop trading with Britain and France, because Germany considered it so dangerous for those countries to receive American supplies that German submarines were being used agains…t all merchant ships in the North Atlantic. The British navy was able to blockade Germany, which only has a short coastline, but the German navy was not strong enough to do the same in return. Germany could only damage British factory production by attacking the ships that carried its essential materials, even if they belonged to neutral countries. Stopping all trade with Europe was not realistic for the United States, for economic reasons as much as national pride. So there was no way the US could avoid being drawn into the war eventually.
Can a 5 year old be questioned by police or social services without parents the incident did not involve accusation of parental abuse?
I don't think they can do that so no!
yes, I am. I'm getting better.
The problem of bullying seems to be pretty much a constant, unchanging aspect of human society, neither getting worse nor better. However, people who are bullied have been adv…ised, by the "it get's better" campaign created by Adam Savage, that their own lives can get better; as they grow up, they will have more control of their own lives and will usually be able to get away from situations in which they are vulnerable to being bullied. So it is a mistake to succumb to despair, too early in life.
Its getting worse because people are asking questions (like this one) which are meaningless. You see we have no idea what your "problem" is from the wording of your question. …This issue with people seemingly being unable to articulate their requests in a cogent manner is getting worse and worse. It is my fear that each generation is getting more and more degenerate.
