No children are abused in the movie, nor do any parents treat their children poorly.

The closest trigger that may be for a person is that a mother yells. It is during a car chase scene after her daughter makes fun of her, though, it is evident the mother loves her daughter and truly does her best to support her. If needed, the sentence yelled is: "I’m just a boring mom, with a boring job, and a daughter who hates me!"

DIRECTOR'S CUT: A child volunteers as sacrifice during a night time riverside ritual. Adults attach chains to the child's feet and give them a large rock to hold. Two adults then start to swing the child, as if building momentum to throw them into the water. A character screams for them to stop and they do. The child is shown returning to their mother, both seeming unconcerned.

**With as few spoilers as possible**

No child abuse per se, but there are scenes of a young person being hurt and children in distress as well as implied child death.

A mischievous kid intentionally startles one character, who then hits said kid in retaliation. But they stop as soon as they see their assailant is just a child. The kid was fine and ran off.

A teenaged character is brutally maimed by a feral animal. You see the scars they sustained from this attack later on and they are rather intense. Another child watches this attack in terror but otherwise goes physically unharmed.

A crowd of people of all ages, including children, are killed at one point. You can hear them collectively suffer before they die. The death is not explicitly shown but heavily implied in a disturbing manner.

The child and their new guardian occasionally argue, but the adult tries to keep it as brief, peaceful, and easy on the child as possible.

there is no on-screen child abuse, however there is an ongoing subplot about one of the couches having sex with underage students. additionally reginas younger sister is showing on screen being sexually explicit, this is played for laughs in a way that can be considered disturbing to some viewers.

No children are shown to be abused, unless Rose is counted to be abused by her mother and fiancΓ© as she is just a teenager at that time.

I guess you could say that the whole experience counts as abuse since it's quite traumatic. But there's no direct abuse towards the children
