Study Finds:

Girls With Nagging Moms Grow Up to Be More Successful

. Oct. 30 2015

If your mom drives you crazy sometimes, there’s an upside.

Getting harassed by your mom about finishing up your homework may not thrill you at the time, but apparently, you’ll thank her later in life.

According to a study conducted by the University of Essex in England, you will probably be more successful than your friends with less pushy moms.

From 2004 to 2010, researchers followed the lives of 15,500 girls between the ages 13 and 14, and they found that the girls with moms who set high standards for them growing up were more likely to go on to college and earn higher wages.

Another bonus of having a mom who’s always on your case: These same girls were also less likely to become pregnant as teens, too.

So maybe a little nagging isn’t so bad after all?

At least, that’s what your mom will tell you when you don’t want to do your homework. Sigh.
