European study found if your toddler throws crazy ar#e tantrums they are more likely to strike it rich as an adult!

The Study published in Developmental Psychology tracked the income and education of kids who attended schools in Luxembourg and found that those who resisted authority and defied their parents in their younger years, tended to stay in school longer, go into further education and succeed in top jobs.

Another study from the University of Pennsylvania psychologist, Angela Duckworth, also backed this theory up.

She said that if kids display a personality trait she labelled as ‘grit’ from an early age, they are far more likely to find career success.

Maggie Dent says toddler meltdowns are part of normal developmental behaviour. Read her thoughts on the matter here.

  • My 5yr old with Down syndrome has a lot of tantrums. I doubt she will end up rich. Rich in love yes ! but rich in money? that is the question…


  • I follow that meltdown leads to stubbornness but not sure about success in schooling. I wonder how big the study was or how long they tracked the children.


  • I doubt this study.


  • I’m really not sure about this!!


  • No sure this has any merit…. but, if it does…. my daughter is going to be a billionaire lol


  • I don’t believe things like this, seriously :/


  • How can defying your parents turn you into a money earner later in life? Lot of hogwash if you ask me


  • I don’t think defying your parents and resisting authority leads to grit. I do believe that grit will lead you to be more successful in life though

    • Grit, resilience and determination are all needed for success for sure.
