Interesting Fact - UK Children

According to a report by Unicef, Britain is the worst country in the industrialised world in which to be a child.

(The reason, according to the UN children's agency, is that materialism has come to dominate family life in Britain as parents "pointlessly" amass goods for their children to compensate for their long working hours. British parents work longer hours and are simply “too tired” to play with their children. Sue Palmer, author of the book Toxic Childhood, said: “We are teaching our children, practically from the moment they are born, that the one thing that matters is getting more stuff."  To be honest though, I wouldn't have minded a bit more stuff when I was a kid.)
