Do you consider shouting at someone abuse?

How about minor name calling such as calling someone stupid is that abuse?

Well ultimately, yes, shouting is abusive especially when it's combined with name calling.

If it's done to belittle someone or put someone down then I can't see how it can be anything but abusive. If there's no name calling or putting someone down involved, I'd still say shouting is a pretty ineffective way of communicating.

I feel a little hypocritical with this though, when I get emotional I tend to raise my voice or shout but I recognise that as an issue I have and probably need help with. There are better ways to communicate and channel your emotion.

That being said, I don't want to come across as squeaky clean here because it's something I struggle with myself.
