I suppose I can credit my mother for my achievements in life, I would anyway.
But according to a recent study by the University of Essex in England, girls who are pushed to do good and finish homework, end up being more successful than others.
The study was done from 2004 to 2010, where researchers followed the lives of over 15 thousand girls, and found that the girls with moms who set high standards for them, were more likely to go to college and also earn more through out life. These same girls were less likely to become pregnant in their teen years.
So don’t feel bad for nagging and pushing your little girls to their max. They’ll thank you in the long run!
