Being a parent has to be one of the toughest responsibilities in the world.
It’s normal to get frustrated with your children, especially if they are misbehaving. But the way you express this frustration and deal with the situation can have major implications on their personality development and their long-term health.
Harsh parental disciplining measures, like yelling, can have an even bigger impact on kids than you think. Here are some reasons you should desist from yelling at your kids;
1.) Yelling changes the way their brain develops
Yelling and other harsh parenting techniques can quite literally change the way your child’s brain develops. That’s because humans process negative information and events more quickly and thoroughly than good ones.
2.) Yelling makes their behavior problems get worse
You might think that yelling at your kids can solve a problem in the moment or can prevent them from behaving badly in the future. But research shows that it could actually be creating more issues in the long run. Yelling can actually makes your child’s behavior even worse. Which means you have to yell more to try to correct it and the cycle continues.
3.) Yelling can lead to depression
In addition to children feeling hurt, scared or sad when their parents yell at them, verbal abuse has the ability to cause deeper psychological issues that the children may carry into adulthood.
