Which situation is better out of these two?
Q: Can you tell me what is more disturbing: living without a father or living with a father who is scolding and abusing all the time?
A:Your question sounds simple, but it conceals a whole complex set of events. I could answer you straightaway by saying that living without the father is better than living with an abusive one. But scolding is different from abusing and the effects depend on the frequency and intensity of the scolding. Without knowing the details, I would not venture to suggest a simple solution. If you want to, you may provide more details with a specific question that you wish to ask, not a generalisation.
