İngilizce (ABD) hakkında soru

I have an "if question" : If your little sibling/child did something wrong and dangerous, do you think that you could say: "What were you thinking, knucklehead?" and "I hope you learned your lesson, bonehead" (hoping that he/she did learn) ? Someone told me that those were just GENTLE scolding? I'm happy when there is a term "gentle" but how these can be seen as "gentle" when there are "knucklehead" and "bonehead" ? Or are insults sometimes used as scolding BUT they still can be gentle?
