A recent study by the University of Pittsburgh suggests that yelling may be just as detrimental to the long-term well being of adolescents as physical abuse.
The study defines yelling, or harsh verbal discipline, as shouting, cursing, or using insults.
Researchers found that the use of harsh verbal discipline does not minimize problematic behavior, but instead may aggravate it.
