Raised to rule.

Your kids giving you lip?? Watch out, warns PhysOrg. Those are the ones who’re going to be in charge some day:

Good parenting may better prepare children for future leadership roles if the children happen to challenge the boundaries set out by their parents. This gives the children an opportunity to learn why the rules are in place and then learn from their parents how to achieve their goals without breaking the rules.

“Some of these early examples of rule-breaking behaviour, more the modest type, don’t necessarily produce negative outcomes later in life – that was fairly intriguing,” says Maria Rotundo, a professor at the University of Toronto’s Rotman School of Management. “It doesn’t mean all children of authoritative parents are going to become leaders, but they are more likely to.”
