Science of RAising Happy Kids

Happify recently posted an interesting infographic about the science of raising happy kids.

Happy Kids

Some of the stats in this infographic show:

  • Dad Matters: Feeling loved by Dad was even more important for kids’ wellbeing, happiness and life satisfaction than feeling loved by Mom.
  • A mom’s satisfaction with her life is more important to a young child’s social and emotional skills than her education, income or job status.
  • Get Off The Couch: Sitting around is linked to unhappiness: 21% of boys spend more than 3 hours a day watching TV, movies or on the computer compared to 16% of girls.
  • A study of 12 countries found that the happiest kids live in Mexico; the U.S. came in fifth.
