    Does word "ream" has the meaning of scold?

    A son and his father are talking about his future.
    The boy is wasting time. The father is getting angry.

    Dad:You ever think about your future?

    Son: Dad , come on .You don't have to ream me.
    Dad: This is not reaming. No, this is fatherly advice.

    ream someone out is an idiom. :D To remind someone of their present/past faults in a form that resembles a heated lecture (i.e. page by page by page).

    All the best,
