  • The Good Childhood Report 2018

    Created: 29/08/2018

    The Children's Society have published this year's Good Childhood Report.

    Children are struggling with their identity and alarming numbers are self-harming.

    Pressure to fit in is making children unhappy – from how they look, to their sexuality, to how boys and girls must behave. Twice as many girls are self-harming as boys, and almost half of children attracted to the same or both genders self-harm.

    The Children's Society are urging the Government to make sure that every child can talk to a counsellor in their school.

    The Good Childhood Report 2018, produced in partnership with the University of York, is the seventh in a series of annual reports published by The Children’s Society about how children in the UK feel about their lives.
