Children today

Newsround have released the stats from a survey they conducted to celebrate their 35th year about childhood and how children today view their community, society, family and themselves.

1 in 4 don't count their fathers as immediate family
74% like school
62% feel their parents worry about them too much
Most want to play outside – not on their computer
a third want to help the environment
...and they think Britain is a great place to live

Very interesting read for anyone as it seems to destroy some of the myths and ideas people have about how children view all these things.
