Parental Gender Stereotypes and Student Wellbeing in China

Klaus Zimmermann (), Shuai Chu and Xiangquan Zeng

No 15497, CEPR Discussion Papers from C.E.P.R. Discussion Papers

Abstract: Non-cognitive abilities are supposed to affect student's 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.
