Is it illegal for parents to emotionally abuse their kids?

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.
