Camp is Ending: Spirituality and Children's Happiness

Spirituality is a major contributor to a child’s overall happiness (more so than for adults), finds a University of British Columbia study. Past studies have shown that in adults, spiritual feelings and higher levels of religious behavior typically account for about 5% of a person’s overall happiness. Surprisingly, the results of the study found 6.5% to 16.5% of children’s happiness can be accounted for by spirituality.
