Could Yelling At Children Lead To More Problems?

A new study says parents who yell at their children could make their behavior worse.

Researchers at the University of Michigan and University of Pittsburgh studied 1,000 families. They found parents who shouted, cursed at or verbally humiliated their children were more likely to have teens with symptoms of depression compared to teens not disciplined this way.

Harsh verbal discipline was also linked to behavior problems like misbehaving in school, stealing, and fighting.

Experts recommend having discussions warning teens about the consequences of their behavior.
