The Good Childhood Report 2014

The Good Childhood Report 2014 is the third in a series of annual reports published by The Children’s Society about how children in the UK feel about their lives.

The report makes use of the best and most recent data on children’s feelings about their lives from other sources, including international comparisons.

Among the key findings are:
• Children in England ranked 30th out of 39 countries in Europe and North America for subjective wellbeing and ninth out of a sample of 11 countries around the world.
• Around 13% of 10 to 13 year olds are unhappy with the way they look, with girls faring much worse (18%) than boys (9%).
• Children who are regularly active have higher well-being compared to children who are not.
And children who use computers and the internet regularly have higher well-being than children who do not.
• Around 15% of children living with a severely depressed mother had low well-being, compared to around 9% of children who did not.
• Children who felt poorer were twice as likely to say they were unhappy and almost three times more likely to say they had low life satisfaction.
