London, Dec 3 (UNI) Fathers won't feel too happy after knowing about a recent survey's result that one in four children do not see them as part of their immediate family.

While mother's role was crucial in childhood, many fathers were no longer seen as part of children's immediate family.

At least 96 per cent kids named their mother when asked about their immediate family, while 26 per cent did not even consider that their father was part of that group.

The survey of 1,000 youngsters, aged 6-12, from around England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, found that the vast majority described themselves as 'happy', although a significant minority would like to change the way they look, the Daily Mail reported.

Nearly 60 per cent said they preferred to play outside with only one in ten saying they felt unsafe on the streets.

The children's top priorities were being kind, good at sport, intelligent - and rich.

Educational success was less important, although 76 per cent said they enjoyed school.
