Researchers looked at the effect of mother’s and father’s yelling on their adolescent children. These researchers found:
- that yelling at 13-year-old children predicted an increase in behavior problems and symptoms of depression between the ages of 13 and 14.
- misbehavior by 13-year-olds predicted more parental yelling as verbal discipline, and
- parental warmth did not influence the effect of yelling on the child
