No. If you have a child that will wander off, it is the best way to keep him/her safe.

Another opinion: It's not considered abuse as far as the law is concerned, but some people strongly object to the use of child "leashes" and the like, so you might get some looks at the very least.

Is it considered abuse if your fiance says you are stupid and crazy and tells others that you are crazy?

I certainly consider it abuse. I also consider it a good reason not to marry this person. Please! Read outloud what you asked. Your fiance is telling you that you are stupid and crazy, and then telling others?? Don't marry this person!! How do you feel when you hear him talk to you like this? Now imagine you are married (and stuck) with this person, how are you going to feel then? He will break you down to nothing. You are someone and something NOT nothing. Find peace. You don't need a man or any "friends" like that. I've lived my whole life putting up with any crap a man would dish out to me, just so that I could say I had a "boyfriend" Now I am not dating anyone, I have peace and do not feel like I am nothing without a man. There are many different kinds of abuses; I would call this verbal abuse. It IS considered abuse.

What is legally considered child abuse?

The legal definition of child abuse can be complex and is determined by state law. Many states have included forms of "emotional abuse" under their definitions of child abuse, so you can imagine how tricky that interpretation can be. Note also the difficulty state legislatures have had in respecting religious practices that rely on prayer or other alternatives to traditional medicine, particularly when the subject of the alternative approach is a sick child. For a more definitive answer to your question, find your state's statutes on the internet and do a search using the terms child abuse or neglect.
