    That's odd I've spent time there with my British side of the family and they have the happiest lives and greatest relationships with their parents. I favor the UK to the US still though despite this article.

    The report means nothing to me. Not to try and get this moved to Gold, but I really don't care what the UN has to say.

    Could it be because they have jobs and/or enough money to get by? The article was referring to families at or below the poverty line, of which it appears Britain has more than its share.

    It never ceases to amaze me how people seem to always have this need to blame someone else for their problems.

    Why do people especially want to always blame their president for their respective dilemmas? As if.

    Did I just say that?

    And the US has it's fair share of the problem as well, our president thinks it more important to ignore that and have our people killed in the middle east for some "war" instead.. anyways..

    And your point is?

    The article was about child poverty in Britain, not the U.S. You made a vague general statement about living conditions in the UK based on your limited contact with the "British side" of your family. I'm sure they have great lives--hey, I have a great life in the US--but it has nothing to do with families who live below the poverty line.

    If you favor the UK to the US so much, no one's stopping you from going.

    It is analysis of offerings from various government programs. Opinions on political parties and politicians doesn't come into play. Most likely the United States scored higher because of federalism and size.

    Re: UK worst place in developed world to raise child

    Well, I'm lived in the UK all my life and I think I've been raised quite happily. The only gripes I've had with this country is the stuff I mentioned in my 'princesses and Cars' thread, and that hasn't really affected my development.

    I remember you saying in another thread how great the school system was there, and how bad the US system was.

    Guess that didn't work out as planned.

    Re: UK worst place in developed world to raise child

    I actually would love to spend time in the UK. Any place that produces Radiohead, BBC, and Posh Spice, is A-OK in my book.


    Fair play to you!
