Psychological Abuse

“My granddaughter moved in with me because she couldn’t support herself. She often calls me names like stupid and selfish. I started to really doubt myself. Even though I felt foolish I spoke to my sister about what was happening.”

Abuse is psychological if somebody threatens and insults someone, calls them names, humiliates or embarrasses them, intimidates them, treats them like a child or does not allow them to see family and friends.
