But Nagging Children is more than those, it’s the way of constantly humiliating child and making children’s life miserable in a true sense.

A study published in the “Journal of Child and Family Studies” found that nagging was associated with higher levels of parent-child conflict and lower levels of child compliance and cooperation.
