This graph shows how the DADvocate Survey participants value their children. The specific question is “How Important are your children to a Happy Life? As you can see the great majority said between 8 and 10 with most of the respondents answering 10. I didn’t find this surprising, but what I did find surprising was that there were a few respondents who actually put a 1 down.
I’ve got to be honest I just can possibly fathom that children are only a 1 in importance. They teach you so much. I was actually interrupted during the writing of this post by my daughter who was having a bad dream. It was the one where a snake comes and crawls on you. I remember having a similar dream as a kid and told her about it. She felt better and went back to bed. I feel better about that single interaction than anything else I’ve done all day. How can anyone rate this lower than an 8?
What do you think? If you would rate this lower than an 8 I’d love to hear from you! Tell us what drives your rating.
If you have not yet taken the DADvocate Survey please don’t forget to do so.
