Your wellbeing as an adult tied to your childhood and high school friendships

August 8, 2012 at 8:00 AM Leave a comment

Having good friendships and relationships as a child and teenager, and taking part in social activities such as youth groups and sporting clubs, is linked to greater wellbeing as an adult — more so than early language development and academic achievements in high school (these being linked to one’s socioeconomic status) — so social networks trump socioeconomic class when it comes to wellbeing. The study is published in the current issue of Journal of Happiness Studies.
