Abstract


In this article I would like to raise the issue of verbal child abuse in relationships between children and people important to them. Parents and teachers are the first role models in a child’s life, therefore their messages have a causative power as they create the image of the “self” in a child, as well as the way of perceiving and valuing themselves.

In the last part, I present consequences of such experience for the development and life of children.
