How many times as a mom have you had to tell your kids any of these things?

"Hey, pick up your dirty clothes. Unload the dishwasher. Make your bed. Did you do your homework? Brush your teeth. Hey, I'm not going to tell you again or I'm going to ground you."

Next time you have to nag your kids to do stuff and you've had it up to your eyeballs with them not listening, keep this in mind ... kids who are nagged are more successful.

Yep, based on a recent study out of England, kids who are nagged end up being more successful as adults.

It means that all our nagging makes them more likely to go to college, avoid making poor life choices and have better-paying jobs.

So to all my moms, keep up the nagging. Now, if only it worked on our husbands.
