A recent study shows that daughters of nagging moms tend to be more successful. Surprised? So were we. The study was conducted by the University of Essex, led by researcher Ericka Rascon-Ramirez, and showed that girls who have mothers who “nag” them were more likely to graduate from school, go to college and get better paying jobs compared to girls whose mothers were ‘more relaxed’.

According to this research, mothers who tend to nag their daughters (in spite of incessant eye-rolling and complaints) do so because they have set high expectations for them. Experts have said that setting high expectations from your children will push them to meet these expectations. As a result, they work harder, and gain more confidence. However, there is no mention of any other combinations – mothers nagging sons, or fathers nagging their children.

While it may be normal for most parents to set high expectations of their children, we are wondering how much one would believe that “nagging” your child, (why daughter in particular, we are unsure!) would lead them to do better in life.

Mothers, can you think of a time when you were nagged by your mothers in childhood, do you think that had any influence on you today? Do you feel nagging your daughter will egg her on to do better in life? Comment and let us know!

Panel Discussion: Together, Apart – Uniting Efforts for Children in the New World Order

With children out of school, physical distancing as the new norm, and children’s rights under threat, the new world order has “turned back the clock” on years of progress made on children’s well-being. However, it’s not all bad. As a human race, we’ve been built to adapt: we’ve seen a tipping point in technology-enabled education and the promise of a new education policy in our country.

What can we, as influencers of change in the education space, do to create a better tomorrow for children? Join us for a panel discussion where we can come together to unite our efforts to secure the future of the nex-gen and create a better tomorrow for children.
