PITTSBURGH - Yelling at your teen may make you feel better, but a new study says it does the opposite for your children.

According to researchers at the University of Pittsburgh and the University of Michigan, teens are more likely to have depression if their parents shouted, cursed or verbally humiliated them.

The discipline was also linked to behavior problems, like misbehaving in school, stealing and fighting, according to the researchers.
