When are we most happy?
Two-thirds of those aged 68 claimed having fun is one of the most important driving forces.
This was a sentiment shared by eight out of 10 of those aged nine – more than any other age in the poll.
“The results cement the idea of a special bond that we so often see between grandparents and grandchildren,” the Mirror quoted psychologist and author Susan Quilliam as saying.
“Each is at a stage in their life when they are discovering or – in the grandparents’ case – rediscovering the boundaries by which most of us live our lives,” she added.
