Study examines reasons behind young children rejecting classmates
from Study Finds
Teachers and parents alike dream of a classroom where all children are welcomed for play without ever being told by a peer to "just go away." When it comes to childhood rejection, typically it's the behavior of the rejected child that's looked at to figure out what he or she was doing to invite rejection. However, a new study finds that the reason behind the antisocial behavior often lies in the hands of the child doing the rejecting. Researchers from Jaume I University and Universidad Pablo de Olavide in Spain turned the lunch tables and interviewed the kids doing the rejecting instead of focusing on the child left out.
