Researchers, who looked at anonymous, aggregate Google searches to give a picture of what American parents are worried about when it comes to their kids, has found that parents are more concerned with a daughter's weight and appearance and a son's level of intelligence.

It was found that parents are more likely to search 'is my daughter pretty?' and 'is my son smart?', reported.

The study found that there were fewer queries related to daughters and intelligence, despite the fact that girls are 11 percent more likely to be in programs for academically gifted students.

Thhe most common Google searches for girls are 'Is my daughter ugly?' or 'is my daughter fat?', and 'Is my daughter overweight?' was searched for almost twice as often as 'is my son overweight?'.

The research also suggested that parents are more worried by a chubby girl than a chubby boy.

Overall, parents are more likely to use words like 'ugly' or 'behind' when searching for information about a daughter, while they are more likely to use positive words like 'gifted' or 'good-looking' for a son.
