Emotional Abuse, Parents, Teenagers, Partners
Here is list of questions based on emotionally abusive partners. If you are a teenager living in your parent's house, look at the questions and change them to "your mother" or "your father" and see how many apply.
The original questions are from http://www.lilaclane.com/relationships/emotional-abuse/
It is much more common in today's society to talk about abusive partners than abusive parents. But parents will "train" a teenager to accept abuse since a teenager really is trapped in most cases. The abuse has to be extreme and usually has to include substantial and repeated physical abuse, or proven sexual abuse, for the teenager to be able to get legal help in getting away from the abusive parents. As a one teenager said, people will say "How could she be so stupid?" when a girl stays with an abusive boyfriend, but most teenagers have no choice whether or not to stay with their abusive parents.
