Well-being and the child

October 6, 2014

(1) How is child well-being defined? (2) What are the domains ofchild well-being? (3) What are the indicators of child well-being?

Results indicate that well-being is a commonly used but inconsistently defined term frequently included in the study of child development.There are five distinct domains of child well-being: physical, psychological, cognitive,social, and economic. Positive indicators are used more often in the physical, cognitive,social, and economic domains, while more negative or deficit indicators are used in the psychological domain.

What are some ways you can increase child well-being in these areas?
