  • is this considered child abuse?

    Normally when my mom wants me to get up or do something then I don't want to she usually throws around the usual words. Spoiled, rude, ungrateful, etc. But then when it gets to the point where my mind is anchored towards me not going because I'm in the middle of something and my mom is yelling at me she gets to the point where she slaps my leg multiple times. I'm not exactly sure if this can be child abuse but I know that this isn't an occasional thing as it happens about a few times every month but if I'm lucky only once.
