    1. Mahaffy, Kimberly A. (2004) Girls' Low Self-Esteem: How Is It Related to Later Socioeconomic Achievements? Gender and Society. 18(3), 309-327

    - It is clear that female self esteem is partly responsible for success in the future. Parental involvement is also essential in developing self-esteem.
    - This is a quantitative study dealing with self esteem in boys and girls.
    - Adolescent girls seem to have lower self esteem than boys the same age.
    - Surveys used.
    - Self esteem has a greater impact on men than women in terms of professional success.
    - Social context can cancel these correlations: things like class and race do matter here as well, not just gender.

    2. Amato, Paul R. (1994) Father-Child Relations, Mother-Child Relations, and Offspring Psychological Well-Being in Early Adulthood. Journal of Marriage and Family, 56(4), 1031-1042

    Quantitative study of 471 adults.
    - Main finding: good relations with fathers leads to better life chances in the future.
    - Closeness to fathers is INDEPENDENT of closeness to mothers in terms of basic life success (including self esteem). So even if the mother-daughter relationship is bad, self-esteem (and general happiness) can be created through closeness to the father.
