As per a study being taken out by a group of researchers from the University of British Columbia, it has been revealed that parents remain happy and relaxed in their lives in comparison to non-parents.
In order to reach at the above given result, the study researchers were of the view that they conducted the study on three stages. In the first stage, they compared happiness level among parents and non-parents.
Second level was to know the duration of contentment of parents, as they wanted to know that whether happiness was momentary or permanent and last stage, was to know that presence of children and taking care of them gives parents a sense of accomplishment or not.
UBC psychology professor Elizabeth Dunn, who co-authored the study, was of the view that their study is one of its kinds, which reveals that parenting gives a sense of completion as well act as source of happiness.
Another co-author Sonja Lyubomirsky said that sense of security and happiness increases with age. "While more research is needed on this topic, it suggests that the pleasures of parenthood may be offset by the surge in responsibility and housework that arrives with motherhood", Dunn said.
