    My father keeps scolding me.

    Hi,

    Please check if the passive version is correct.
    My father keeps scolding me.
    I am kept scolding by my father.

    No, there is no natural passive version for a sentence with "keeps doing" like that.
    You can say, "I keep being scolded by my father".
