This blog post, translating a study about how Icelandic children are now happier does not surprise me.
Before the collapse, when we all had busy jobs, lots of stress, no time and slightly more money, no one was happy. Certainly not the kids who were left at school from 730 a.m. until 530 p.m., only to be brought home (or go home to an empty house) and put to bed.
People have time for there kids now, and the kids like it.
I guess if you have nothing better to do....
OK, I admit even our children have benefited from the kreppa. We are both home much more, and they love it.
