she kicked you?
well yeah, id say thats child abuse
but also, and not making excuses for her bahavior, what was happening that made her just come out abd kick you?
seems like this is a first or something, if so, thinking its more than just not listening

Yes any physical thing like hitting or kicking or shaking violently is considered child abuse.
If this has happen a lot in the past or happens again in the future either call the police or contact social services.

maybe technically but honestly, are you hurt? are you in need of assistance? is she often abusive? why weren't you listening?

many question had to be answered here

I have nothing against physical punishments, but simply saying your mom kicked you doesn't really clarify whether it was child abuse or earned punishment.

You should give more information.

Ya, kicking, hitting, shaking, pulling hair, anything like that is considered child abuse. It doesn't sound bad enough to report her yet though. I would just try talking to her. Be sure to tell someone if she ever does it again though. She could do something much worse in the future.
You will be in my prayers :)
