The negative effects can, not only affect their self-esteem, but it might also affect your relationship together.
In a TikTok video, Csilla Love, who is a conscious parenting coach and a mom of two, showed the potential negative effects of parents yelling at their kids.
Love, who portrayed the role of the mom, said: “I am feeling so overwhelmed and angry right now, which is causing me to yell at you because I want you to do as you’ve been told!”
Then as the child, she said: “Your yelling can actually make my behavior worse rather than better which means you’ll have to yell at me more to correct it and the cycle will continue.
“Your yelling is also changing the way my brain develops because I am processing these negative emotions much quicker than the positive ones.
“Not only am I feeling hurt, scared, and sad when you’re yelling at me, this verbal and emotional abuse can cause depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, and aggression when I grow up.”
She then continued to reveal the negative effects on the parent-child relationship, adding: “Our relationship will become unstable and volatile when we are unable to communicate in a healthy way.
“I will start to pull away from you and become more influenced by my peers.”
Many took to the comment section to express just how identified and heard they felt as she posted this video.
One person shared: “When my parents yelled at me, I just didn’t care anymore.
“I don’t want to spend time with them and to get back at them, I didn’t do what I was told.”
Love then agreed that this was “all too common and the exact opposite of what parents are trying to do.”
