Happy children are often independent. It's not to say they never need help, but they are willing to try to do things on their own – even new things. They know people will help them if they mess up and that failure isn't the end of the world. They're able to bounce back and try again. Additionally, they are able to connect well with those around them, including family members and classmates. 

This article discusses these examples, as well as other ways to tell if your child is happy.

You can speak to their child often about their day. While it is common for children - especially teens – to give a simple "it was ok," dig deeper and ask more specific questions. This can help you know if anything concerning is going on at school. If your child is suddenly faking illnesses, skipping school, etc., those are also signs they are unhappy, and it's likely related to school.
