Clothes strewn around her room, homework not done, chores unfinished.
If you’re a parent you often find yourself on repeat?
Or feel that you must be doing something wrong?
But next time you feel bad about nagging your daughter, take note of this study.
The researchers found that girls with stricter parents go on to be more successful in life.
The scientists from the University of Essex in England studied the lives of about 15,000 girls between ages 13 and 14 over six years.
They found that daughters with pushy mums and dads were more likely to attend college and work in higher-paying jobs.
The girls were less likely to get pregnant in their teens when compared to those with parents with ‘middling aspirations’.
Lead researcher Ericka Rascon-Ramirez said: ‘No matter how hard we tried to avoid our parents’ recommendations, it is likely that they ended up influencing, in a more subtle manner, choices that we had considered extremely personal.’
