Study says parents are happier after kids move out


(WIVB)–Apparently, only one thing can make you happier than having children and that’s kicking those kids out of the house.

A new study found parents tend to be happier in old age than those without children, but only if their children have moved out.

Researchers say it’s because the stress of balancing childcare and work is replaced with a form of social support.

They say that’s crucial to happiness as we get older.
