ARE YOU HAPPY WITH YOUR LIFE?
A REPORT has revealed that British kids are the least satisfied with their lives across Europe.
The study by charity The Children’s Society found that British 15-year-olds reported the lowest levels of satisfaction with their lives and the greatest fear of failure across 24 European countries. Young British people also ranked last for children’s overall sense of purpose, with two in five saying they felt their life lacked clear meaning or purpose.
The Children’s Society found that there was a strong link between fear of failure and low satisfaction in life, with some evidence of rising child poverty playing a part too.
It’s thought that too much pressure could be being put on young people to do well at school and in their exams, and this is causing them to be scared of failing.
