If verbal abuse is getting worse since the third marriage can a family member step in without social services getting involved or would it be better to start taking foster parent training?
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.

How old do you have to be to leave your parents in South Carolina without the police getting involved?
Answer . If you leave home before the age of 18 without parental consent or being emancipated, then your parents can report you as a runaway. South Carolinas Childrens Code defines a 'child' as anyone under the age of 18, and specifically states that running away from home is a 'status offen…se' (meaning something that is against the law for a child, but not for an adult).. Answer . At the age of 17 you can leave home. (MORE)

This question is not specific enough to focus on one type of wrestling nor one particular pro-wrestling organization. Also, saying that wrestling is getting "worse" is a matter of opinion, and personal observation rather than an established fact. If this question pertains to pro-wrestling, and there… is a degree of perceived decline, then speculation as to the cause could be discussed here. Since pro-wrestling is, and always has been, primarily a form of entertainment, it is a business enterprise, and it's success is largely due to fan interest and support. Causes of decline might include poor business management, marketing, a lack of talented wrestlers, and the lack of revenue to pay better wrestlers/performers. Another consideration is for the modern interest in other combative sports such as Martial Art tournaments, mixed martial art, and cage-fighting. The realism, and raw fighting talent in these other genre might draw attention away from the more theatrical performances of pro-wrestling which seems to have shifted more toward the drama, and less of actual wrestling. (Note: Wrestling is often a hot-button topic, and draws criticism for many reasons. If contributors here would like to add legitimate reasons why they feel wrestling is getting "worse," then please stay on topic, and present facts. For debate about wrestling itself, please use the discussion page below) (MORE)
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 physically violent. Better to have the Police show up to nothing than put yourself at risk. Once you know the Police are on there w…ay, 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. (MORE)
What are the chances that a verbally abusive parent will continue the abuse after his child becomes an adult and what can be done to make sure the parent gets the message that Enough is Enough?
Answer . \nAbusive people don't get "enough is enough." I have no idea how old the parent is, but medications can certainly contribute to anger outbursts, bad behavior, or sometimes the start of Alzheimer's or Dementia (this can start at much earlier ages than doctors had anticipated previously.…) Alcohol and drug abuse are also included in this. Drug abuse can also mean being hooked on prescription drugs. \n. \nWith luck, once you have left the home and your parent is in good health as far as you know, absence can make the heart grow fonder. Sometimes parents have difficulties with "the empty nest syndrome" and this could be part of it. Even though you may feel you both never got along, that parents hates the thought of you not being there anymore (their baby is out in the world and they don't need them anymore.)\n. \nIt's like you having a 16 - 18 year marriage and suddenly you and your wife/husband separate. It takes a lot of getting use too because if anything, the routine is broken.\n. \nAll you can do is leave, give it a month, then try going for a visit and keep this up for 6 months. If you don't see any changes make the visits less frequent. I can feel that you wish with all your heart your parent could be happy for you and that all was well and it doesn't quite seem to be working out this way. In time, hopefully it will. I suggest in a month asking your parent out for lunch and making an effort, but if it continues to upset you, then you have to move on and keep in touch every so often until your parent tells you verbally they don't want to hear from you.\n. \nPlease don't feel guilty! You have done nothing wrong and you certainly deserve a life of your own.\n. \nGood luck\nMerry Christmas\nMarcy (MORE)
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. \n. \nIf 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 th…e 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.\n. \nDon'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. (MORE)
Could a 17 year old in Pennsylvania move out of her parents house if she is being abused without having to go to a social service?
\nThis is not legal advice and should not be relied upon as such. Consult the specific laws for the state and county in which you reside for the rules that apply.\n. \nIn most states, any 18 year old is considered an adult and is capable of deciding when and where they reside. They have the ability… to contract for housing. SOME states allow minors to become emancipated under specific circumstances, but this is not just a matter of filling out some paperwork.\n. \nA minor is the responsibility of their parents until such time as they reach the age of majority or are legally emancipated. The parents are required to provide for the support of their minor children. If the parents give permission, the minor can live in another location. Such permission does not relieve the parents of the responsibility to provide support.\n. \nIf the parents do not give permission, the minor can be considered a runaway. Charges may apply to individuals that aid and abet such runaways, particularly if they are under the age of consent. In some states it is my understanding that this is not enforced for 17 year olds that leave home.\n. \nIf you are subject to abuse, you should contact social services for your area. They will assist you in getting out of the bad environment and into a safe place. (MORE)
If a family member ruined your credit by receiving utilities can you prove that you were under age without law enforcements getting involved?
Answer . You're not exaclty clear in your question, but if you're implying that a family member used your personal information to obtain utilities in your name, then you're talking about identity theft. \n. \nIf that's the case, you should fill out an identity theft affidavit, available from t…he Federal Trade Commisssion and other fraud websites. However, as part of the affidavit, you need to supply a police report number, so that would mean the involvement of law enforcement.\n. \nThe bottom line is you have to protect your credit and your future. Credit bureaus want to know you take the situation seriously and are being truthful, so they require a police report. What you can do is file the report with your local agency and then drop the charges after you get the report number. Or you may find they're willing to file a report even though you don't want to prosecute. (MORE)
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 verbally? Believe me, that is a problem caused by the way he views himself, some inner conflict, or other problem that HE HAS. I doubt tha…t it is going to do anything but get worse.\n. \nAt 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.\n. \nThe 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.\n. \nMy advice? Leave the guy - NOW! ~Deb (MORE)
It's hard for a woman to get over a verbally abusive man because the abuse was directed at her self-esteem and self-confidence rather than her physically. People look at a woman who's been physically abused and they can obviously see the injuries caused by the abuse, but with verbal abuse it's diffe…rent because no one can see that you've been continuously that you're ugly, stupid, not worth the time of day, no one will ever love you and that the abuser is all you deserve. You believe it. You end up feeling so degraded that you can hardly function because it's all you've been told by someone who says they love you. To heal from verbal abuse a woman has to first get away from the abuser which is hard, then seek counseling where she can gain her self-esteem and self-confidence back. Then she must realize what was it that made her susceptible to an abuser in the first place. It takes years for a woman who has been abused to fully heal, but more so with psychological and verbal abuse because they are directed at the woman's mind and she begins to doubt herself. Only about 1 out of 2000 women abused are abused in just one form. (MORE)

Answer There is no definite way to answer your question as there are no stats kept on such matters especially verbal abuse, as it's not a crime to verbally abuse somone.

And a lot… of women or men who suffer physical abuse don't ever report itt so there is no definite way of knowing. (MORE)

You mean like when you first start an acne cream? Benzoil peroxide is bad for that because it really dries out your skin and makes it red and itchy especially if your new to it. But when i went on accutane my dermatologist said my skin would get worse before better to and he said because it was basi…cally pushing your acne to the surface to shrink the glands. My advice? well im not going to recomend benzoil peroxide because i hate the stuff but its also because when i went on proactive (benzoil peroxide based) i got bumps on my skin which is a sign of being allergic to it so it just basically helped sorta didnt really do anything, but it made my skin feel really good n clean. I use Oil free Acne stress Control by Neutrogena, it is easily the most comfortable cream ive used because theres moisturizer in it and its easy on your skin and it helped right away before getting worse, its not as strong as benzoil peroxide though. I dont really know if that answered anything but its kind of a hard question, hopefully someone will add. (MORE)

Would getting her family together to do intervention Help her to realize she has an abusive problem?
Interventions are pretty much a one-shot deal. If they fail, they usually do so spectacularly and can rarely be repeated effectively. They are not something that one simply sits down and does. Family members are too emotionally involved with the presenting member to be able to pull them off on their… own, and any intervention attempt without professional help is doomed to fail, except in rare instances where the person is already hoping for a solution. . Interventions need to be planned, structured, and refereed by an outsider who is trained to facilitate them. It is quite possible that one could be useful, but you should discuss this issue with the professional who would conduct it. (MORE)

If you are legally "competent" - at 18 you are probably legally emancipated in your state. You can leave home (if physically/mentally capable) but without any signs of physical abuse, I doubt that your grounds for suit are valid.
yes, in fact that is almost always the case. The state or in your case social services, can do whatever they see fit and healthy for the children no matter the parents say. Their primary goal is the safety of the children.

If you are a minor then you can go to Child Aid and report the abuse. They will investigate in a discreet manner and not give out your name. If you are not a minor and still live with your step parent then consider moving out. If you do not live at home, but have siblings that are putting up with ve…rbal abuse then report it to Child Aid. Be sure you understand what verbal abuse is: Verbal Abuse: . Constantly yelling; screaming or threatening any children in the home. . Constantly telling them they are useless; they will never amount to anything. . Playing head games such as being nasty enough to put doubts into the victim of verbal abuse. 'You are fat'; 'You're ugly and who would want to date you?' Non Verbal Abuse: . If a minor is not sticking to the rules of the house and being disrespect this is not verbal abuse. . If the step parent demands the minor does their homework. . If the step parent has a curfew for the minor such as being home at a certain time. . If the step parent does not like the group of friends the minor is seeing. . Not allowing smoking of any type in the home or the step parent does not allow the minor to drink in the home. These are but a few. Parents are just human and can lose it on occasion when they become frustrated with the minor and often minors go through a stage where they are trying to flap their wings of independence because they are at the edge of being part child to part man/woman, but not quite there as an adult. This is generally when parents or step parents clash. The upside is that eventually parents accept their children as adults when their children have earned that right. Most parents or even step parents want to protect children no matter if they are their own or not because in reality that is all minors have for a safety net ... adults to protect them. Growing up with rules is teaching minors that this is the reality of the world fair or not. Constant verbal and degrading abuse is unacceptable. (MORE)

The question is not very clear, I would recommend that you start a discussion thread on this first.
A person must be legally disabled to use a service dog so the first place one would go is to their dr to document that they have a substantial impairment of one or more major life activities and hopefully get some documentation of this. They would then decide whether they'd like to apply to an agen…cy to provide them a dog or if they can owner train their own. If one applies to an agency there are varying requirements as to cost of the dog, retention of ownership with some, and waiting lists. They will want to contact or see proof from the doctor that you qualify for a service dog. If one owner trains they are responsible themselves from beginning to end for all the costs, the quality of training and even if a dog is not working out. While you will not have an agency checking if you meet legal disability requirements, for your protection you'll want to maintain documentation that you are legally disabled and if possible that you will be using a service dog. This is in the case you have to prove in a court of law that you are legally allowed to do what you are doing. You'll also want to keep documentation as much as you can about the effective training of the dog. Also note that states make the rules about where a dog in training may go. If your state does not allow an owner trainer to take a dog into public places you will need to train only where dogs are allowed until the dog can meet the basic federal requirements for a fully trained service dog. Once these requirements are met, the dog can complete it's training in public places. (MORE)

God prophosised over me and said my life would get better and for a day or two it did but now 2 weeks since I was prayed for everythings getting worse than ever?
If you had someone else pray for you; that's not the same as you praying to Jehovah God yourself. Unbeknownst to many people who think God listens to all prayers; Jehovah God, the Creator, The Almighty, -- does not listen to all prayers . He himself states of some people's prayers in Isaiah 1:15: … "although you make many prayers, I am NOT LISTENING ." Perhaps the person praying for you, was not acceptable to Jehovah; maybe doesn't even worship Jehovah. Just because someone is a clergy person, doesn't mean he was ORDAINED by Jehovah God. You first need to learn the truth about Jehovah, and what he requires of you. Then you will be drawn close to Him; and he will draw close to you. You also need to learn about the requirements Jehovah has for prayer. Jehovah does not just answer every Tom, Dick, and Harry's prayer, just because you prayed.. Please see LINKS below. . Another answer: God does listen to all prayers, but what you need to understand is that sometimes He says no. Otherwise you could pray, 'Dear God, I pray that I would be rich and famous and have a ferrari etc etc' and Bam! you'd get everything? How would that work? Everyone would be praying for everything and the world would be a mess! Praying that your life would get better is a bit like those prayers. Your life is never going to be perfect, because there is sin in the world. Maybe a better thing to pray would be that God would help you through the day, and strengthen you. (MORE)
