A new study claims that kind children are happier and more popular with their peer groups.

A team of researchers at the University of California, Riverside, carried out an experiment with 400 children in the age group of nine to 11, from Vancouver elementary schools in Canada.

The children were split into two groups. One group was asked to perform and note down three acts of kindness every week for a period of four weeks. Some of the kind acts included "Gave my mom a hug when she was stressed by her job" and "gave someone some of my lunch," reports BBC.

The other group was asked to keep note of the pleasant places, like play grounds and shopping centers, which they visited each week.

Maybe "McDonald's Happy Meals?"

Anyway, without any social control gotten into them. Some are "naturally" nice, some are not.
