The Children’s Society published the Good Childhood Report 2016 in September 2016.
The report is produced in partnership with the University of York. Key findings from this year’s report are that:
- There is a growing gap in happiness between girls and boys.
- Girls are less happy than they used to be, we have seen more 10 to 15 year old girls unhappy with their lives over a five year period.
- Children’s direct experiences affect their well-being more than factors further removed from them.
