On average, how many times per day does a 4-year-old child laugh?

  • 45 times
  • 1,200 times
  • 300 times correct

    Research has shown that laughing produces certain changes in the human body. Laughter can reduce stress hormone levels, lowering cortisol, epinephrine and dopamine levels. A good belly-laugh increases beneficial hormones such as neurotransmitters, endorphins and infection-fighting antibodies. On average, a 4-year-old child will effortlessly find a reason to laugh around 300 times per day. As adults, the incidences of laughter decrease to an abysmal level, around four times per day.
