  9. They value effort over avoiding failure.
  10. The Mom works.
  11. They have a higher socioeconomic status.
  12. They are “authoritative”, rather than “authoritarian” or “permissive”.

  13. They teach grit (grit is the tendency to sustain interest in and effort towards very long-term goals).
