 Parents Split Affects Kids' Happiness

Parents split up is worse for a child's happiness than not having money, revealed in a study.

The Understanding Society project found that not living with both natural parents adversely affected a child's 'life satisfaction' more than the household's material situation, reports the Daily Mail.

In fact, neither poverty nor wealth influences happiness, according to the research-although the more siblings they have, the unhappier they are.

It interviewed 34,500 people for the initial research including more than 2,000 children aged between 10 and 15.

The study also found that children are happier with their family situation if their parents are happy.
