Happiness & Children – the role of spirituality

VANCOUVER – Four years ago, two American psychologists put forth a simple question: What do you want for your children?

More than 10,000 adults in 48 countries across six continents responded overwhelmingly with one answer: For their children to be happy.

While hardly a surprising answer, what was surprising was that academics knew virtually nothing about what makes children happy.

Turns out, the hippies were right: Spirituality is a major contributor to children’s overall happiness.
