Child is asked by their mother what the child likes about the mother's family(the mother has two other children that live with her) the child states that they enjoy spending time with their half siblings. The mother decides that the child doesn't enjoy spending time with the mother or the child's stepfather so the mother tells the child that while the chikd is at thd childs father's home the child must call the mother and ask the mother to come pick the child up at the designated time and place( the mother and father chose previously)n order for the child to prove to the mother that the child wishes to be a part of the mother's family. If the child doesn't call and request to be picked up the mother tells the child that the mother will not be at the spot to pick the child up. Would this be considered emotional abuse of a child?
