Yelling at your children when things go wrong isn’t going to help them, according to an article by The Wall Street Journal. Research showed that 75 percent of parents yell at their children, and this can be dangerous for a child’s ability to grow, the WSJ reported. While talking sternly and authoritatively is fine, “yelling becomes damaging when it is a personal attack, belittling or blaming a child,” the WSJ said.
“Many parents lose control because they take children's misbehavior or rebellion personally, research shows: They feel attacked or think the child's actions reflect poorly on them,” the WSJ reported.
