If gym teachers yelling at students produces such positive results, we should encourage math, science, and history teachers to scream at their students whenever they get something wrong. Just imagine how good our education system could become.


People yell at you in life. The more prepared you are for it the better. If tears well up in your eyes when someone releases emotion on you, you are in for it. Better to prepare now. thanks to all those who yelled at me growing up.

I participated in athletics in my youth and my parents yelled at me here or there. I wouldn't say it was a good thing for the most part. Not all the time but for the most part.

If you are still getting yelled constantly still at this time in your life, I would suggest surrounding yourself with different people or a different job.

Yelling at each other is not normal nor civil discourse. In fact, most of my coaches didn't yell. And there is a difference between projecting one's voice and yelling. A big difference.
