It is impossible to predict whether or not people who have had abortions will grow up to be successful adults. However, psychological research have demonstrated that some childhood experiences have an impact on adult life.
Here we are, reflecting on some of the events of our lives, from childhood to adulthood. Good luck with your reading!
Your kindergarten social skills can influence whether you go to college or look for work.
According to research conducted at Penn State and Duke universities, “socially competent” kindergarten pupils are considerably more likely than students with weak social abilities to graduate from college and find work by the age of 25. Children with poor social skills are more likely to get arrested, become addicted to alcohol, and eventually work in bars.
According to a study, witnessing their parents' divorce at a young age has an impact on the mature relationships they build with their parents.
If your parents divorced while you were between the ages of 3 and 5, it's very likely that you and your parents had a rocky adult relationship. This insecure relationship is more typical with dads, according to research performed at the University of Illinois.
If you grew up imitating your parents, you're more likely to be open-minded in the future.
According to research conducted at the University of KwaZulu-Natal in South Africa and the University of Queensland in Australia, if you did everything your parents did as a child, even if it didn't make sense to you, you're more than likely to have developed the ability to accept that some actions may have "unknown" purposes.
If your mother works, you have a good chance of developing leadership abilities and earning a lot of money in the coming years.

If your mother works, you may find yourself becoming a more involved parent in the coming years.
Boys whose mothers work are more likely to do housework and childcare, according to the same Harvard study. These males spend seven and a half hours each week on childcare and 25 minutes more on housework than men whose mothers are housewives, according to the study.
Trying to be "cool" in high school can lead to issues later in life.
Children who consumed alcohol and cigarettes in high school, went outdoors and had sex until late, and had sex until late were found to have major drug and alcohol problems and commit crimes in their early 20s, according to research performed at the University of Virginia.

Learning mathematics at a young age will help you achieve greater success in maths and reading in the years to come.
