Finding out what makes kids happy

From Here:

Spirituality -- defined as an inner belief system -- accounted for eight to 17 per cent of the average child's sense of happiness, the study showed.

By contrast, money, the marital status of parents and the child's gender didn't even register one per cent.

"It's a whopping big effect," said Holder, especially since spirituality only accounts for four to five per cent of an adult's happiness.
