A RE­PORT has re­vealed that Bri­tish kids are the least sat­is­fied with their lives across Europe.

First News - - BIG NEWS -

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.
