Why are England’s Children unhappy?
28th August 2014

New research by The Children’s Society shows children in England aren't as happy as those in developing countries. 

Lucy Beresford, a Child Psychologist, explains why she thinks this is.  

England sat in 9th place out of 11 countries surveyed with Romania, Spain and Israel sitting in the top positions. 

Peter Grigg is from The Children’s Society who carried out the report, he says the reason for the 'surprising' outcome is due to English children, especially girls have big hang-ups about their appearance.




Lucy Beresford believes communication and interaction is key for a child to feel like they are fitting in.



So what are the solutions to unhappy child?
