Poland -- good place for child-rearing

According to a UNICEF report on child well-being in developed countries, Poland is the second best of the 25 OECD countries surveyed in terms of behaviours and risks (healthy lifestyle, lack of violence), and third best for educational well-being. The report also found that Poland has the lowest pecentage of overweight young people (7.1%) and the lowest percentage of teenagers under 15 who had had sexual intercourse (15.1%).

I hope there was no 'Freddy Mercury style' undercurrent here ;) ;) A good finger for rearing a child? That's just rude!!!

Mods, please change it to 'place', thanks!

Stats are just that, numbers! They are often collated haphazardly but I feel that they may be quite accurate here. Children here tend to be sharper but I hope that their parents still have the time for them given their busy lives.

Pol3, your last stat made me laugh. Do you really think they are going to declare that? You can't even begin to get close to a representative stat of those that haven't had sex under 15. Just think about it for a moment!

Mea culpa for the typo. I think Gates, whose computerdom I roundly curse several times a day, has retaliated by infeting my computer with his typo imps... But seriously,

many stats are compiled on the basis of self-declaration. Those surveyed often say what they think is expected of them or what puts them in a better light. It's like people who say 'Nowadays everybody lies and steals'. But they may become flustered if asked: 'You too?'

But summa summarum, do you believe Poland is a good or bad place to raise kids?

I would most definitely come down on the good side. I just hope that religion isn't drummed into them so that they can make choices for themselves. The 'sticker society' is anachronistic and needs to be replaced by a more rounded approach to why they believe in certain things. Morality tends to be for choice here but it can be overly stiff. More tolerance and Poland would be a highly desirable location for raising kids.

do you believe Poland is a good or bad place to raise kids?

it might depend on the part of town one lives in or the school one chooses to attend.

wealth and poverty make a difference too.

on the whole: poland is a good place to raise kids.

Religious upbringing and stronger family tradition are often positive factors in the child-rearing process. In the US, some parents who aren't very relgious or aren't even Catholic send kids to Catholic schools because there is such a thing as discipline, dress codes and ethical formation. And such kids bring fewer guns and drugs to school than their public school (Brits read: state school!) counterparts.

Poland has lowest pecentage of overweight young people (7.1%) and lowest percentage of teenagers under 15 who had sexual intercourse (15.1%)

Those numbers have risen since 2010 but as they have in other countries, too, we can say that cultural/ social differences between Poland and others are still visible.
