On Verbal Abuse

Liisa pointed out a post discussing verbal abuse and calling for a change in our approach to the topic:

The way that children are educated about abuse needs to change. The way that people involved in interventions, like police officers and crisis counselors, needs to change and these people need to be involved in helping people identify and name verbal abuse. Helping people articulate what is happening. We need to stop telling people that words can never hurt them.
