The Good Childhood Report

 29 August 2018

Children are struggling with their identity and alarming numbers are self-harming. Pressure to fit in is making children unhappy – from how they look, to their sexuality, to how boys and girls must behave. Twice as many girls are self-harming as boys, and almost half of children attracted to the same or both genders self-harm. We’re urging the Government to make sure that every child can talk to a counsellor in their school. The Good Childhood Report 2018, produced in partnership with the University of York, is the seventh in a series of annual reports published by The Children’s Society about how children in the UK feel about their lives.
