Frequently yelling, hitting, or threatening your child with physical consequences could have a negative impact on their behavior at school, a new study has found.From an analysis of more than 1,000 students, researchers found that kids raised by harsh parents were more likely to find their peer group more important than other responsibilities.This mindset led them to engage in negative behaviors, including delinquency and early sexual behavior, during adolescence. As a result, children brought up by harsh parents often had lower educational achievement by the age of 21.
