Daughters of strict moms are more successful

If you push your daughter a little too much and brave nagging stares from the new-age moms who believe letting their daughters be is the right parenting technique to raise confident kids, then this is the time to pat yourself on the back.

According to a recent study, tiger moms who pressurise their kids to perform both academically and otherwise are actually raising more successful daughters.

The research was conducted from 2004 to 2010, where researchers followed 15,500 girls between the age of 13 and 14 years. Daughters with mothers who were too pushy ended up earning higher salaries and went to better colleges. Also, the research claimed that these girls are less likely to get pregnant during teen years.
