There's a scene where bugs infiltrate her kitchen through a crack in the wall. Her son also collects bugs preserved in glass.

The mother repeatedly attempts to convince her son that all of the strange goings on is all in his head.

The main child is verbally abused and threatened by his mother. She also forgets to feed him and at one point masturbates with him close by though he’s asleep it’s still uncomfortable.

At one point the mother was literally tied down. Also, pretty much this entire thing is torture from the Babadook.

There is no self harm type cutting in the movie. However, in one scene there is a moving flip up book with a drawing of the main character cutting her own throat with a big knife and blood spills out. The actual character carries the same knife at certain parts of the movie but she does not cut herself or anyone else with it.

A child's nose is broken in two places at the hands of another child. They require surgery to repair it, but it is otherwise non-life-threatening.

Amelia hallucatinates a bloody, dead Samuel on the couch beside her while she's holding a kitchen knife. She snaps out of it pretty quickly but it's an upsetting visual.

Technically a book belonging to a child is destroyed.

The dad is dead since before the film started, and the main character hallucinates about him several times, including a scene where his head gets sliced in two.

At a children’s birthday party, they hire a mime/clown. Only on screen a few seconds and is kind to the children.

not exactly, but in emotionally distressed states the protagonist repeatedly hallucinates her dead husband very vividly.

There’s an unsettling bathtub scene with the mother and the son. Everyone is dressed and nothing is overtly sexual.

There’s a scene where the mom is lying in bed and the son jumps into bed with her. It’s startling. Another scene, the mom is lying in bed and The Babadook is crawling on the ceiling.

Some say that the mom is possessed by The Babadook towards the end of the film, but in reality, she is just suffering from mental illness.

The main character's child is apparently neurodivergent, and there are scenes where she shames him for "not being normal". In other scenes, she is mentally abusive towards the child but it is unrelated to his behavior or neurodivergency.

The book shows the mom slitting her throat, but she never does it. She does however, rip out one of her teeth.

There is a scene in which a moving flip up book shows a picture of the main character cutting her own throat and blood spills out. The picture is drawn so it's a bit childish but very creepy and jarring. The character herself does not actually commit suicide (though she may have threatened to do it, I don't remember).

Near the end, it is in the Babadook's point of view, and there is a very shaky, nasueating camera view. Not for long, though.

there are a few points where the electricity flickers on and off, creating a flashing light effect, but there is no actual strobing.

The father dies in a car crash before the events of the movie, and flashbacks are shown. There's also a scene about 54 minutes in where the mother crashes into another driver, but nobody is hurt.

Yes there is gore. The mom pulls out one of her teeth which is a bloody scene. The son also stabs the mom.
