Harsh discipline increases risk of children developing lasting mental health problems      (via     Original source 

Harsh discipline from parents puts young children at greater risk of developing lasting mental health problems, new research shows.

Hostile parenting involves frequent harsh treatment: for example, shouting at children regularly, isolating them as a punishment, or unpredictable treatment depending on the parent's mood. While parenting is only one factor influencing mental health, the study recommends that mental health professionals and teachers should be alert to its potential impact.
