LERWICK – A new Bank of Scotland study has found that Shetland is the best place in Scotland to raise children until they’re able to make their own decisions.
The study’s report adds to the growing body of evidence which shows that children are happiest in Shetland before their cognitive abilities develop.
The study found that children in Shetland were at their happiest in Shetland until the reach the age of 7 to 10 when they browse the internet and realise what they’re missing on the mainland.
The study reports: “Children in Shetland live in a state of blissful ignorance until they reach Internet Age. It is now widely recognised that introducing children to the internet, and thereby exposing them to the things that they’re missing out on in the Scottish Mainland, has a catastrophic effect on the child’s happiness.”
