What is tough love and is scolding effective?

Question : It really confuses me to see how people scold each other all the time, especially parents who scold or beat their children. Is scolding supposed to be helpful or effective? Is this really good for people? 

Dear Teentalker, 

Thank you for asking such a valid question. I can understand your dilemma which is so valid. 

Let me first tell you that scolding is basically a form of punishment which people use to discourage a negative or undesirable behavior. However, sometimes scolding may not really do that job successfully.
