Ladies watch out for "Prince Harming"
Since I'm doing work in bullying and reducing victimization, I thought it was appropriate that I put an article about this issue, emotional/psychological abuse.
I have heard of many emotionally abusive situations and some people are in relationships where this is occurring right now. Women do this too but this article is to help other women stand up for themselves if they are in an abusive relationship. Emotional abuse is hard to quantify but it can be extremely hurtful to the victim and hence why I'm bringing it up.
I found this article in Women's Health by Martha Brockenbrough which describes the early warning signs of Prince Harming. http://www.womenshealthmag.com/sex-and-relationships/emotionally-abusive?page=1 I have listed all the characteristics. Check it out! and dont put up with this behaviour.
Emotional and psychological abuse is hard because it's complex, hard to define and hard to measure. What do you do if the guy you are with has some but not all of these characteristics?? I know many women who complain that their boyfriend/husband has shown this behaviour but it's hard for them to come to terms with the fact that the behaviour is abusive. Many stay with them thinking that they will change.
