A recent study has depicted that the children who are disciplined are likely to grow up to become more healthy and wealthy.
The study was conducted by researchers from the Otago University. The researchers reveal that the self control skills of children determine their future in terms of health and wealth.
The findings of the study suggest that if youngsters make slight improvements in self control then it could result in less crime in a nation.
The research has appeared in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science. The researchers studied 1,037 children who came from different socio-economic backgrounds in New Zealand.
These people were studied form birth to the time they attained the age of 32. The children were evaluated on measures of self-control by their parents, teachers and also by the researchers.
The researchers found out that although the kids had different intelligence and diverse backgrounds but those who had poor self-control t the age of 3 were more likely to suffer from health hazards like high cholesterol, obesity, high blood pressure, gum disease and sexually transmitted diseases.
The lead authors of the study, Terrie Moffitt and Avshalom Caspi of the Duke University revealed that self-control is important in order to have a better future.
