What Really Makes Teens Happy

Sit down. If you haven’t heard the news about teens this should make you and every other parent smile. And it’s about time. A seven-month study conducted by MTV and The Associated Press interviewed nearly 1,300 young people aged 13 to 24 years old. The results found that the majority of teens find the most happiness in family. What’s more, most respondents listed their parents (i.e. you) as their heroes. And (it gets even better) most young people (over three-quarters) said being with their parents brought them even more joy than being with their friends. What’s more, half say religion and spirituality are very important.
