Studies show that having a nagging mum actually makes women more successful. True story!
The 2015 study from The University of Essex studied 15,500 girls aged between 13 and 14 for a period of seven years.
The study found that girls with mothers who had high expectations of their behaviour were more likely to attend university, earn a high salary and end up in stable relationships.
Ericka Rascon-Ramirez, a researcher in the study, told the Daily Mail that parenting styles end up influencing children’s choices long term.
“In many cases we succeeded in doing what we believed was more convenient for us, even when this was against our parents’ will. But 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,” she said.
You know what made me feel good out of all this? I mentioned to my teenage son that apparently nagging pays off and he just shrugged and said well you don’t actually nag me that much. WINNING!
It’s the little things lol
Do you find yourself nagging the kids very often?
