Re: Britain ranked worst for childhood

Not at all surprised, family life in the UK has almost entirely disappeared and children are worse off for it.

Re: Britain ranked worst for childhood

funny how the US didn't mentioned their own country in the title.

here in germany the news in at the front page everywhere with self-critics. at least they try to do anything to make it better.

but what do you expect from countries like the us and uk who kill other people around the world. hard to believe they have good politics for children in their own country. as we see they didn't. they care less for their own people. just pathetic this bush and blair.

It just kills me how informed everyone one outside of the U.S are so damn informed about american culture, because they watch a couple of baywatch episode and listen to Britney spears. Get over yourselves.

Whenever i check any news websites of the US I never read anything about family politics. Just Iran, Iraq, North Korea, Wars, Blasts etc. Just negative things all the time.

And you wonder why everyone has a gun there and high crime. Not the best place for children someone might think.

yeah Germans never killed anyone outside of their country, they just sistematicaly tried to wipe out jews and gays in their own country and then they went after the rest of Europe... something for which they never paid for BTW...

This report is so BS, no way living in Greece or Italy is better than living in the US or Canada , I am not sure what is used as a basis for this report, but it is from Unicef, so it is obviously biased...

Oh and aside from watching MTV and going to cnn.com where do you get your information on America, I swear the impression people have of America around the world is so , so way off, its not even funny, there is plenty, more than plenty of America bashing here, plenty of it...

I have no idea what you people are talking about. I had a fucking amazing childhood in the US, better than it would've been if my parents had raised me in Mexico or anywhere else. I had family and neighbors who would send cookies over during christmas and easter, people who would say hello to you down the street, parks and a playgruond nearby with tons of kids to play with it was effin' awesome!
And we were pretty poor because my mom pretty much raised us on her own and it was still great.

I want to have my evil way with Tommy Robredo

You might want to try actually LIVING in one of these countries before passing judgement on how good a life is there
