Is it considered child abuse if the mother back-hands the daughter?

Report as

Hitting a child in the face is never good. If hit on the cheek, it can damage teeth and cause bleeding of the mouth. If hit straight in the mouth, it can cause loss of teeth and bleeding. If hit on the nose, it can break a child's nose or cause a bloody nose. If hit on the ears, the child can lose their hearing. If slapped hard enough on the side of the head, it can cause a concussion (internal bleeding inside the head). You get the idea.

It is never ok to hit a child. There is always another way to discipline a child, without resorting to hitting. Love is trust and safety, not hitting and terror.

If a kid does something that he isn't suppose to be doing there is nothing wrong with a spank, child abuse is when you can't control your temper

A smack on the arse is by my standards, but a backhander? That's going too far in my opinion.

Not usually. The Bible says "Whoever spares the rod (of discipline) hates their children, but the one who loves their children is careful to discipline them." Proverbs 13:24 (NIV)
So as long as your just giving her discipline, its ok.

Yes it is abuse of a low order (if no injury is sustained), in any case it is abuse as it will leave a lasting negative impression with you for life. if the back hand is due to some reasonable rules, conditions you broke? She is your provider and you need a place to sleep, a place to eat, a place to live and then go to college. if you abide reasonable rules to avoid a back handing, then do it. I am over 50 my mother back handed me many times. I lived thought it, back handing, but I don't like my mom to this day and have barely any relationship with her. My adult children get along with her though, when and if they visit her. My mom was not a bad person, just didn't know how to relate to her kids. get counseling if you cant cope with it. but you are in precarious waters, if child protective service gets involved. your almost legal age, stay in school and graduate. then move out, you dont need to take revenge of reporting her, you just need her to stop the back handing; try talking to her first.
