Survey Says These Are the Best Things About Raising a Child – #1 are the Cuddles


Other favorite aspects include seeing their personalities develop and laughing often over the youngsters' quirky questions and funny remarks.

Watching kids' movies, seeing them do something you've taught them, and reading bedtime stories together, were also among the top wonders of having kids in the house.

The survey of 1,300 adults by Calpol—which is marking its five-year partnership with a British children's helpline by launching its 'Don't Bottle it Up!' campaign—found being a parent has impacted the mental wellbeing of 66 percent.

While 19 percent believe raising kids can help you appreciate the little things in life more, only 61 percent of those polled said they had enough support and resources around how to parent the kids in the first six months.
