There is no physical abuse of a child in this movie. Telling a disrespectful, unruly teenager to clean their room is not abuse. The boy not liking his foster parents is not abuse. There's no mention of any abuse on their part, nor is any seen. The boy calling them "dicks" doesn't confirm they are abusive. It just confirms he's a resentful teenager.

At most you could argue there's emotional neglect on the part of the adoptive parents and biological mother. That's it.

In a way, the T-1000 could be seen as posessing the people it copies.

There is a scene where it copies someone and then confronts that person as himself".

Yes, very much so. A main character repeatedly experiences flashbacks, traumatic memories, and nightmares from a past trauma as well as knowledge of traumatic, future events. This shapes the petson's motivations and behavior.

To the comment about the T-1000 shapshifting:

Body dysmorphia disorder (BDD) is a body-image disorder characterized by persistent and intrusive preoccupations with an imagined or slight defect in one's appearance.
This means that the afflicted person cannot stop thinking negatively about their appearance, or aspects of it.
It has nothing to do with shapeshifting appearances.

It's not intense, but there's a moment in the climax where John is being pushed away from his mother on an industrial conveyor with no room to escape. If a viewer made it through the industrial press scene in T1 without trouble, this one won't be a problem.

No. No one is known to be pregnant, much less shown to die while pregnant in this movie.
Considering obscure possibilities is not the purpose of these trigger warnings. It's about what's actually shown or directly implied in the movie.

A dream sequence depicts a nuclear explosion in graphically realistic detail, including the deaths of children.

Not super gory, however, people do get shot, and punched. There is a scene where the main character, (a cyborg-robot being) has a little portion of his head open, with a bit of blood but all of the insides are robotic. There's another scene where he is cuts around his arm on the skin and tears it off, revealing a robotic arm.

Drowning is inhaling liquid into the lungs, which disrupts gas exchange, resulting in death. No one drowns in this movie. Two cyborgs are melted in a vat of molten steel. They don't drown. They physically can't drown.
