Note the 3rd paragraph down which clearly states that children are happier in happy families than ones that argue even if those happy families are made of step parents. This is evidence. Dispute....
You realise those who did the study educated me right? They are from my old undergraduate university
They taught me all this in the first place you know!!!!
And yes, I'll dispute.
It has always been recorded that any family with conflict is negative family, and one unhealthy for children. That's not news. Greater conflict occurs in stepfamiles. That's fact. "a child in a lone parent household [is] 2% unhappier than one living with both birth parents, the report found".
A small difference, but a difference nonetheless. Those with birth parents will be happiest (including adoptive families) which is confirmed by further research which I've previously told you.
And the study focuses on things like: the areas where children live, their school work, their future prospects etc. It is a fact, that those in step-families (and also certain lone-parent families) will be at the S*** end of that stick.
You aren't disproving me, you're actually confirming lots of what I've said.
