This paper tackles three questions that arose at the first
seminar of the Chair “Childhood, well-being, parenting” in
Rennes. All concern research on the subjective well-being
of children. First, it was suggested that research on child
subjective well-being was a smokescreen, distracting
attention from much more important issues in children’s
lives. Second, it was questioned whether the comparisons
that we make of children’s subjective well-being between
countries and over time are valid and reliable. Third, it
was asked whether there was any policy relevance to
research on child subjective well-being.
