Yelling is as Hurtful as Hitting

A new study about yelling came ouby researchers at the University of Pittsburgh and the University of Michigan.  They found that yelling at a teen can have the same negative effects as physical discipline.  

Those negative effects can be depression, low self-esteem, risk of aggression, and overall feelings of being worthless and useless.

With that being said, we all want to avoid damaging the identities of our youth.
We want our kids to develop into young men and women who feel loved, are confident, and feel that they can be successful in any future endeavor.

How do you avoid yelling at your child to get them to listen?  Do you revoke privileges or give specific consequences for breaking rules?  

Please share in the comments below what you've found to work in your home.
