Our kids are drinking less and smoking less.
ThatÂ’s according to a new report from the Health Promotion Research Centre who say children now are happier than they were in 1998 when they carried out their last report .
Over 40,000 kids were quizzed for this report in 2010 with 9 out of 10 of them saying theyÂ’re very happy with their lives.
Compared to 1998 when the first survey was taken, thereÂ’s been a drop in the number of kids starting to smoke and drink and even take drugs.
TheyÂ’re exercising more, more of them are saying theyÂ’re in better health and 4 out of 5 of them are wearing seat belts in the car Â– doubling the previous number.
However, over half of them said they talk to their friends on the phone, by text or on the internet Â– thatÂ’s up from the same report in 1998.
