Parental gender stereotypes and student wellbeing in China
Shuai Chu, Xiangquan Zeng & Klaus F. Zimmermann
Non-cognitive abilities are supposed to affect students' educational
performance, who are challenged by parental expectations and norms.
Parental gender stereotypes are shown to strongly decrease student
wellbeing in China. Students are strongly more depressed, feeling blue,
unhappy, not enjoying life and sad with no male-female differences while
parental education does not matter.
