Everyone wants their daughter to be a success by something that's easy for you to do today (because you probably already do it) can lead to your daughter having a higher paying job. Researchers from the University of Essex in England conducted an experiment to determine how a girl’s upbringing can affect her life as an adult.
To do so, they examined the lives of about 15,000 girls between the ages of 13 and 14, following them between the years of 2004 and 2010.
After analyzing the results, they found that daughters with stricter parents were more likely to attend college and snag higher-paying jobs. They were also less likely to become teen moms. In fact, parents with high expectations were believed to reduce a teenager’s chance of becoming pregnant by 4 percent, compared to those with “middling aspirations.”
