Happify recently posted an interesting infographic about the science of raising 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 moms satisfaction with her life is more important to a young childs 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.
