According to a national study looking at health, education, community and economic factors, the AP reports that Massachusetts is the second-best state for child well-being.
Massachusetts received top scores in education and health care and came in at No. 10 for family and community.
This, on the heels of Boston ranking No. 1 on Parenting magazine's "Best Cities for Families 2012" list.
How does this make you feel as a Boston-area parent?
