While the scars that they leave are similar, bullying was not labeled as deep, dark abuse because most 5 year to 10 year olds shouldn't get a jail term. They need therapy, to determine why they are expressing domination tendencies and to show them how to express their anger in a positive way, before they become deep, dark abusers.

I think we are all aware that bullying destroys the self esteem.
Bullying can be done by adults too, although abuse canít be done by children. This is a thread where people have shared their experiences if being bullied by adults so I donít understand why you are choosing to make that distinction with just me and what it has got to do with what I said.

ĎI think we are all aware,í it is condescending. The reason I said it is because having tennis balls being thrown at you will not destroy your self esteem but darker, deeper bullying can.

Also, because the distinction between bullying and abuse can overlap, people are sharing both. Not all bullying will destroy your self esteem.
