It is always worse to deal with a constant pain than a pain that heals or weakens with time. If you are abused in any way on a daily basis, it is probably going to be considered the worse situation by most people. Besides, parents can be replaced by friends and other family members as well as adoptive parents.

That is my opinion.

I'd say having abusive parents would be worse than not having parents. I grew up from the age of 14 onward without parents, I became emancipated since I proved I could take care of myself. I'll be honest it was better not having parents than that of having them around and being abusive. Or at least that's what I feel...

Having no parents...there is possibility as long as you're alive. Abusive parents can change and gain back your trust no matter how long it takes. Parents who have abandoned you can come back. Dead parents can do neither good nor bad, except leave a big void in your life!!

Abusive is worse.

For me, it would be abusive parents. I wouldn't want a parent that would beat the shit out of me, call me names, hurt my feelings and stuff. I would rather have no parents than abusive parents.

I think having Abusive Parents are worse in my opinion cause they will beat you at the point where they would come up to you and beat the crap out of you for no reason and they are capable of beating you until your heart stops beating and you stop breathing...Having no parents is bad too yet you learn a life where your not spoil, where you can actually take care of yourself and you dont need anyone looking out for you, also you'll live in a world where you show no fear and limits. thats my opinion but ya can think what ya want

I'm not speaking for everyone when I say this, but from my personal experience, abusive parents are worse.

Depends on the extent of how abusive the parents are. Generally child maltreatment includes physical and mental abuse, and neglect.

Neglect = same as no parents at all... actually, maybe it's worse, since the child would grow up to learn that their parent(s) is/are supposed to care for them, but end up yearning for something they will not have.

physical abuse = depends on extent. But I guess you mean the extreme cases, in which the child would be better off without a parent.

mental abuse = personally, I think this is the worse type, because no matter how mild this type of abuse is, it has the potential to destroy someone's character and it may affect them for the rest of their lives. Wounds can heal, and people naturally find others that care for them, but the mind may be affected forever.

As someone who had abusive parents growing up, I think I would've been much happier without any parents.
