Verbal abuse in the home, is a catalyst for all sorts of negativity. When a parent constantly downs a child, that child learns to condemn. If a parent or parents are always angry with the child, that child learns to fight. If a child is bullied in the home by his or her own parents, the child will become inhibited and hindered, to the point of desperation. I often wonder if the school shootings were done by children whose parents were very confrontational with their child, and then when the child went to school, they were bullied and/or picked on by the other students. Chances are if the child had at least one good friend in school, this sort of thing would never happen. These children who are so angered as to want to kill the people at school are acting in desperation. Most likely they are suicidal because they don't fit in ANYWHERE, (not even home), and they can't please anyone.
A rule of thumb for parents is to not be angry with your child, when you are angry about something else. If you are having a bad day, or you are too tired to cook dinner or help the child with homework, or if you think the child is hindering your lifestyle, then get a grip and address your problem in some other way. Obviously everyone needs to vent, but don't vent on your child. The child who is being verbally abused, or worse, at home, will act out those horrors in school.
VERBAL ABUSE can come in the form of Tweets, Facebook messages and posts, and any other publication or social media as well. Verbal abuse is a form of slander, when it's spoken to others behind the person's back. It is a form or harrassment when done directly to the person. Whatever drives you to verbally abuse others, you need to think of the person first, then think of what others will think of you. If your friends will think you are a cooler person for having verbally abused someone, then maybe you should find a different class of friends.
Verbal abuse can come from Presidential candidates who are retaliating for verbal abuse that was done to them. The problem is that once the cycle has begun, you have opened the door to a constant barrage of incoming. The only way to stop it is to ignore it, don't go on social media, and don't be tempted by anyone to see what new thing they've said about you.
Even the news media uses verbal abuse in the form of slander. When the news media constantly picks on your bad points and hides from view anything good you've done, it's a fair assumption that they are trying to destroy you. Withholding the truth is also a lie. Unsuspecting people believe these things which are said to either change your voting preference, or any number of reasons. It is propaganda, which are lies to hide the truth. We all have our own preferences: racial, political, moral, etc. It is not racism. The USA is a melting pot, no disputing that. I do understand that there are those who didn't actually want to leave their country. They fled for their lives, and instead of seeking assylum the right way, they just settled in with no one in the country knowing they were there. These are the illegal aliens. These people may or may not even like the USA. They want to keep their own language and culture in their own family. However, it is necessary to do everything legally. You must become citizens, and you must learn English. This way you won't have to fear deportation.
Once upon a time,
His parents weren't happy,
They nagged and yelled and beat him too,
By eleven the boy was so distraught
He went to Heaven, and St. Peter said,
St. Peter opened the gates, and said,
They want their way,
The children, they suffer, the innocent die.
What monsters to subject their children to this;
They think that they're hiding
Their judgement will be;
For everytime you hurt my little ones,
You did this to Me...
So parents live up to this name meaning love
