It’s Time to Stop the Emotional Abuse of Your Child!

Emotional abuse is a type of child abuse that is subtler than the other types of abuse and less detectable, yet it can be more dangerous than physical abuse. It can scar and damage a child’s sense of who he or she is and cause him or her to lose his or her sense of self. Parents who have negative attitudes may say hurtful things to their children, or, for that matter, they may fail to give their full attention to their children. That does not make them bad parents, nor is it emotional abuse. However, when a persistent pattern of negative attitudes towards their child becomes chronic for the parents, then that can result in emotional abuse.

I sat down next to him and asked him what was wrong. He finally told me that when he is at his dad’s, his dad constantly tells him that he is such a disappointment and that he cannot do anything right...

Ask Dr. Christina: I Didn’t Know That Chronic Constipation Can Kill!

Dear Dr. Christina, My grandmother, who was 92 years of age, was one productive woman who was alert and loved life. She lived independently and loved to read, cook for the family, and go for walks with her walker. I am writing to you because it pained me to see how she died and to learn how her death could have been prevented. Sally
