Unhappy children turn into 'sick adults'2nd March 2009
Research led by King’s College London has found that unhappy children are more likely to grow up to become adults who are permanently sick or disabled.
The team looked at over 7,100 people born between 1950 and 1955 and found those described as "miserable" or "unhappy" by teachers were five times more likely to be off work through ill-health in middle age. These children were also likely to be more prone to depression, according to the study published in the British Journal of Psychiatry.
