first_imgWashington Times 28 Sept 2013Spanking has become taboo in many communities, and the favored method of discipline for unruly children across the country has become the time out. However, when children, especially those troublesome toddlers in the “terrible twos” start disobeying, many parents first result to yelling to communicate their displeasure. A new study conducted at the University of Pittsburgh and published in the journal Child Development finds that yelling at children may be as harmful as hitting.While this may come as a shock to parents, the study finds that children who were frequently yelled at, called names like “lazy,” or cursed at suffered even if the rest of the parent-child relationship was warm and stable. The effects of the negative language were not as visible as physical abuse to the average person, but rather the problems were more emotional and behavioral.Children whose parents reported using harsh language with their children experienced higher behavioral problems in the following year than children who parents did not yell. These children showed increases in the following year in fighting with peers as well as with their parents, doing poorly in school, lying and showing signs of depression. Surprisingly, these effects were the same as with children whose parents used spanking or pushing as a physical discipline approach.While the study group was composed of adolescents ages 13-14, the principles can still be applied to young children. The study said that yelling had such a negative impact because of the developing self-image, and it makes them feel incapable and hurts their self-image.Young children also are developing an important sense of self during the trouble time of toddler-hood and pre-school when they are trying to exert their independence and explore the world around them in new ways. If yelling has such negative consequences on older children who are developing into young adults, think what it can do to the self-esteem and confidence of a young child. The potential is for it to set up a negative cycle of failure and discipline problem for years to come.http://c.washingtontimes.com/neighborhood/parenting-first-time-through/2013/sep/28/yelling-children-harmful-hitting-new-study-finds/last_img read more

first_imgJustin Turner singled and stole second base in the third inning, only the fifth base he’s stolen this year. Turner was stranded there when Corey Seager struck out to end the inning.Howie Kendrick doubled and stole third base in the fourth inning. This time, the tactic worked. Adrian Gonzalez grounded out and Kendrick, running on contact, scored from third base without a throw. That temporarily tied the game 1-1.When they didn’t steal, the Dodgers at least provided an interesting visual for the left-handed Lester.When Kiké Hernandez led off the game with a four-pitch walk, he took a big lead off first base. Hernandez juked and danced and feigned all sorts of nonsensical moves on the basepaths. But he did not steal. Neither did Seager in the sixth inning or Pederson in the seventh.Why not? LOS ANGELES >> Joc Pederson took five regular-sized steps off first base. Then he tiptoed out … six, seven, eight … until he was past the edge of the grass where it angles into the base line. Pederson bent his knee and rotated his hips 90 degrees, aiming them directly at second base, looking like a 1920s sprinter ready to burst from the start line.This is what Jon Lester saw if he glanced toward first base before delivering a pitch to Yasmani Grandal in the seventh inning of Game 5 of the National League Championship Series.Dodgers manager Dave Roberts promised his team would be aggressive on the bases against Lester, who does not throw to bases to hold runners close. At times the Dodgers were more entertaining than aggressive.They still attempted to steal two bases Thursday and succeeded both times. “They’re not the prototypical base-stealer,” Roberts said of those three. “David Ross (the Cubs’ catcher) throws the ball well. Even Jon Lester, there were some 1.15s, some 1.2s, the number of seconds it took Lester to deliver his pitch. “When you starting getting behind in the game, you don’t want give outs away by just stealing,” Roberts said. “The high fastball that you’re thrown out; it’s just not worth it, where you could get an extra base hit to get the game close. You’ve got to be certain if you’re going to do that.”When Turner stole second, he had a 28.3-foot lead off first base, according to MLB’s Statcast system. When Kendrick stole third, he had a 34.9-foot lead according to MLB , more than a third of the distance covered before he began his sprint.Cubs manager Joe Maddon said the Dodgers didn’t use any tactics that he hadn’t seen earlier in the year.“The most important thing is that Jon throws the ball well to home plate. That’s the most important part of this,” Maddon said. “That gets overlooked. I don’t want him to get caught up in the minutiae of everything else.“We have other things in place to take care of that.”In the end, the Dodgers’ creativity on the bases was reduced to a sideshow. Addison Russell ended the 1-1 tie with his two-run home run in the sixth inning. The Cubs scored five runs in the eighth inning, turning a close game into an 8-4 rout.The Dodgers did not lose for lack of effort on the basepaths.“I thought that when we did get a little bit of traffic, we put a little pressure on (Lester),” Roberts said. “But he’s a great pitcher who competes and finds ways to get outs when he needs to.”center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
