Our Good Childhood Report 2021 shows that modern life continues to erode the happiness of young people. Dissatisfied with school, friendships and how they look, children deserve drastic change.
Our key findings
- An estimated 306,000 10-15 year olds in the UK are unhappy with their lives
- Roughly ¼ million children did not cope well with changes during the pandemic
- Young people are particularly unhappy about school and appearance
Society is tragically failing our young people. School, friendships and how they feel about the way they look are causing the greatest dissatisfaction in adolescence.
