According to a recent report by Harris Interactive, Inc., Dads aren’t ranking too high among teens as someone who makes them happy.
What makes you happy?
Mom is still an important figure in the lives of both tweens and teens, as majorities (91% of tweens and 77% of teens) say that Mom makes them happy. Overall, Friends (85%), Grandma (69%), Dad (67%) and pets (58%) round out the top five of those people and pets that make youth happy.
It’s unfortunate that friends rank so much higher than dads. This makes me think I should spend a little more time talking with my youth group guys about godly manhood.
