No, that could be an issue that needs to be brought to the attention of the state's deparment of family and children's services. The definiton of emotional abuse has a very broad interpetation in the eyes of the law. It is highly unlikely that such a charge could be found valid by a social service investigator unless there mitigating circumstances.
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.
Verbal abuse is a type of abuse (leaves no scars with the acception of scarring the mental state of the person receiving the verbal abuse) so no, there is no law against verbal abuse.Yes, it is illegal for parents to emotionally abuse children. Often the emotional abuse has a physical part as well. The emotional abuse is harder to prove, but it can be done and parents can be loose children because of it. I am going to disagree with the person above concerning emtional abuse. Emotional abuse is not only verbal it can also be physcial. An example would be a parent locking a child in a closet for hours or making them stand in an exact position for hours. This is emotional abuse and it is illegal.
yu can only get emancipated if yu have a place to live,job and a way to support yurself..if yu are underage n yu have verbal and emotional abuse they will probably just take yu into a foster home

It is because emotional abuse is harder to prove than physical abuse.
They can be removed from the home by social services. The courts can then remove the parental rights if it is in the best interests of the child. Emancipation is an option in some states.
If there is abuse or neglect involved, you should contact your local Social Services office or the police. You can become emancipated with a court order; if you do not become emancipated because of the abuse/neglect you will be ordered to live with another family member or someone else appointed by the court.
the victim or the abuser? emotional abuse cuts deeper than physical abuse. it has to do with manipulation. though emotional abuse and physical abuse ususally go hand in hand.
If there is abuse, the state will take custody and put them into foster care. If the 16 year old has a job and can support themself, they might be able to get emancipated, but the 15 year old cannot.
