Education increases children's happiness

We are all concerned about the happiness of our children and I believe that parents are the main involved in generating this positive feeling in our children with our dedication, education and affection that we give them every day.

But what does happiness depend on, what is it that makes us more or less happy? UNICEF reveals that education increases the happiness of children.

Although happiness may not be a matter of statistics because it is a subjective perception of each, I think it is important to highlight a study published by UNICEF on the happiness of children in rich countries. It is interesting because it analyzes what aspects are more important as detonators of children's happiness.

The aspects that the study considers relevant are the wellness material, health and safety, educational well-being, family and peer relationships, and subjective well-being, that is, the perception of the children themselves. However, my experience with my own children tells me that, in the end, what matters to to be able to see the happiness in his eyes and feeling it in the center of their emotions depends on having time to adopt the disposition to be at their height to carry out any type of activity, that we play the things they like, that they let me love and that they offer the possibility of receiving affection.

Knowing themselves welcomed and having someone who loves and cares for them, and who makes them value themselves to trust your possibilities, raises their self-esteem and makes them happier.

Leducation produces greater happiness and personal satisfaction than money, according to the Global Wellbeing Survey applied by Gallup in countries around the world, which has just been published. While in the Developing countries Gaining material well-being and economic resources was one of the main reasons that raised the happiness index in society, in developed countries, which already have that well-being and favorable economic guarantees, education is gaining ground and that is what we must feed precisely among our children.

Although the Gallup Global Poll shows that satisfaction levels are highly related to the income of the people who answer the questions, it is also true that education plays a fundamental role in the equation. Higher level of education equates to higher income and greater satisfaction with present life and better expectations about the future, showing that education is a better factor of happiness than economic income. The survey also collects the results in the ranking of prosperity that relates higher happiness rates with the highest average number of years of schooling in each country. In short: education increases the happiness of children.
