Research reveals that happier couples have four or more children
We know that to raise a child requires dedication, attention, money, patience, and plenty of time. And when the family begins to increase, the stress and fatigue will be multiplied. However, one study found that parents with four or more children are more satisfied than those with fewer children because they like the chaos a large family is able to provide. P>
The research was conducted by Bronwyn Harman, a teacher lecturer at the Faculty of Psychology and Social Science at Edith Cowan University in Australia, who interviewed 950 parents of different family structures over five years.
For analysis, participants had to fill out a questionnaire where the grade of social support that the family received, the level of satisfaction with life, and details about self-esteem and self-confidence.
Based on the answers, the researcher created a ranking for the different categories of parents. According to the research, although common sense says that having too many children is costly and stressful, families with more than four children are happier and rarely get bored. P>
The study also found that children living in families also learned to be more responsible, as many helped parents care for younger siblings.
In addition, the survey showed that second among the happiest families were the parents who identified themselves as gay, lesbian or transgendered. According to Bronwyn Harman, the reason for this finding is that the LGB group struggles hard to have these children, so they are very much wanted children.
The results also showed that same-sex couples were considered the most capable of dealing with adversities , without worrying about the opinions of others about them.
According to the analysis, the group with the lowest family satisfaction index was the single parents. One of the explanations for this is that they have more difficulty getting free time to look after their children.
