Is this called child abuse?

If my mom made me scratch her back every day when I was little, is that called child abuse? She wouldn’t make any of my other sisters do it. I have been the middle child and I feel like I was treated differently. I am now in my mid 20s and sometimes think about my childhood and get depressed about it. Would that be considered abuse though?

    If she just asked you to scratch her back and you did? No, not abuse. If she threatened you if you said no or if there were weird sexual vibes or something, then possibly, yes.

    No.. you're probably depressed about something else.

    If that's all, then no. But if there's more to it, then maybe.

    From what I just read, I wouldn't say so... however, I think if you think you may have been abused, maybe talk to a therapist about it, if you're really worried.

    No. I guess you are depressed about more than just that.

    It's not abuse. It's f*cking weird though. She could have gotten a wooden back scratcher. It's very weird and gross.

    No. She did plenty for you in exchange. Much more actually. Was it child abuse when you forced her to change your dirty diaper?

    no....

    unless she violently beat you for not doing it or did it sexually then its not abuse.
