Abstract

Date Presented 04/06/19

Often, social indicators and caregiver perspective are used to define children’s well-being. This research, part of a multinational qualitative study, sought to understand how children ages 8 to 13 years conceptualize and experience their own well-being. Results revealed several indicators of well-being that fell into six domains: social connectedness, physical health, mastery and agency, safety and security, meaningful access to resources, and meaningful use of time through activity.
