Dads: Want an Ambitious Daughter? Do House Work!

Kids really do pay close attention to their parents.

A new study finds that daughters are less likely to believe their Dad when he says she can be anything when she grows up if he does not do housework.

Researchers looked at a group of school-aged girls and found that daughters were less likely to say they wanted to pursue a stereotypical female career like nursing, teaching, or staying at home with kids when their fathers performed a greater share of traditionally female household chores.

Researchers say, "What this is suggesting is that when girls, specifically, are seeing their parents enacting a traditional division of labor at home, it may be limiting their own ambition."
