A recent UN study (from an article read in The Week magasine) found that British children are at the bottom of a well-being league table! It identified that parents in Britain have less time to spend with their children, and find it hard to stop themselves from buying everything they see in the shops. Parents want to make sure their children are happy and think that one way of doing it is to buy what their little friends have and make sure they don’t fall behind their peers on the consumer good front. Apparently though, a recent survey had highlighted that what children want the most is to play outside with their friends and family rather than being inundated with countless toys, video games and expensive clothes. Let’s think about this next time we buy something for our children!
