A nagging mother helps her children to be successful in life, confirms a study


Each individual once they have reached adulthood, has to find their own way, to choose a profession, and a career.

However, not everyone can achieve all these objectives or even excel in their chosen profession.

For example, some women have met with obstacles such as difficulty in job placement and the possibility that their average wages are lower than some male colleagues.

Those, however, who manage to climb to the top may have a secret in common, or a mother that constantly nagged them!

On this topic, the researcher Ericka Rascon Ramirez, of the University of Essex, has carried out a specific and targeted and specific investigation.

The study was carried out between 2004 and 2010 on a sample of about 10 thousand female students between 13 and 14 years of age, who responded to several questionnaires. 

The purpose of the survey was to highlight the connection between the potential and ability to emerge in the world of work and the interaction with a parent of the same sex, who is particularly demanding and stressful.

It has emerged that the relationship, albeit conflicting, and difficult with a mother who is constantly nagging and oppressive, was nevertheless a source of great stimulus for a bright future. 

The presence of a similar authoritarian and pretentious figure instilled in girls the desire to continue their studies and succeed in their chosen path. In practice, constantly having someone pushing them to be their best and do their duty, to respect commitments and be responsible for their actions, had trained them to become methodical and ambitious. 

Someone could argue that adolescence itself is already a very complex period in the life of a person, with physical and psychological changes to try to understand and manage. However, according to the research, it is precisely in this period of existence that one creates the foundation of one's character, with the most benefit occurring around 20 years of age

The study does not suggest always applying an "iron fist" because the same method may be inadequate, ineffective if not counterproductive for some people. It's fine for mothers to try to make her children independent and more knowledgeable, but this is without neglecting, however, substantial elements, such as affection, support, and understanding. 

An individual is a being that is very complex that will not allow itself to be reduced to a simple formula or schematic diagram. There are different characteristics and unique talents, and for these reasons, it is right to discover them and cultivate them, while still letting nature take its course, with perhaps a few smacks every now and then as a wakeup call.
