Number of UK children unhappy with their lives rises – report
The Guardian says growing numbers of British children are unhappy with their lives, with many worrying about school, friends and how they look, a report reveals.
The number of 10- to 15-year-olds who say they are not happy rose from 173,000 (3.8%) in 2009-10 to an estimated 306,000 (6.7%) in 2018-19, the Children’s Society found. That 6.7% – one in every 15 young people – is the highest proportion in the last decade, it said.
The charity lamented the “significant decline in children’s happiness over the decade”, as measured by Essex University research before the Covid pandemic struck in early 2020.
