Verbal abuse is when someone hurts you with their words, saying mean things intentionally. Calling you bad names, demeaning you, putting down something you do, how you act, flaws about you, using their words to make you feel worthless, manipulate you, and keep you feeling bad. Some people say that they think verbal abuse is sometimes worse than physical abuse. When someone verbally abuses you it hurts your self esteem. It makes you feel like you are not on the same level they are. It can make you feel powerless.

Verbal abuse is just another form of VIOLENCE and in the home it's called domestic violence. It is the abusive, belittling and obscene talk that a person spews out at you.

People have been known to be arrested for verbal abuse... but that may be due to being aimed at the police. Verbal basically means speaking, so it depends what is said through the verbal use. E.g. bad language aimed at some, name calling these can be classed as verbal abuse

Most verbal abuse is not real abuse and is hard to prove. If the abuse is severe enough and there is proof, a child can be taken from the abuser.The question leaves more unknown then known

Verbal hostility, or in other words, verbal harassment or abuse is basically a negative defining statement told to or about you or withholding a response and pretending the abuse is not happening. Verbal abuse (or hostility) can lead to emotional abuse and hostility in the workplace. This can lead to hatred and noneffective dispositions in the workplace, and this is precisely the reason why workplaces work to eliminate such disturbances. However, verbal abuse is seen in many other places, not just in the workplace. In school, it takes the title of bullying and even at home parents can emotionally abuse their children or spouses.

There are various potential solutions to verbal abuse. For example, you could try to contact the local law enforcement department.

Not an expert on this stuff but I would say verbal abuse has a much bigger effect than physical. Verbal abuse messes with your mind to where people would be driven to do such a thing as take their own life!

Yelling is when they raise their voices to get their point across. If they are saying mean things and/or threats, then that is verbal abuse

Answer I've never heard of anyone being sued for verbal abuse. If it was physical abuse, I could see you taking that person to court, but for verbal abuse, throwing that person out of your house is about the only thing you can do, legally.

It is assault and aggravated assault, both unlawful. The threatening to kill her part would be verbal abuse.

-many victims believe they are at fault for the abuse -somebody makes another have low self esteem -many don't see verbal abuse because it is often hidden by compliments

* No, the police cannot charge anyone with verbal abuse unless a serious threat can be proven. Physical abuse leaves marks and thus the police can charge the batterer.

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.
