Parents who yell at their teenagers may be making existing behavior issues worse.
According to a study from the University of Pittsburgh and the University of Michigan, 13-year-olds who receive harsh verbal discipline from their parents suffer more depression. They are also more likely to misbehave at school.
The study focused on nearly one thousand families both in the United States and Europe.
The study also found teens who are yelled at are more likely to lie to their parents, steal and get into fights.
