Study: Popular Children Meaner

A paper published in the American Sociological Review found that the more teens struggled to be popular in their schools, the more aggressive they were. What do you think?

  • “Kids need to know that you can get just as popular by kissing ass." ”

  • “I don't know about this. My kid's a huge asshole, but he's not popular at all." ”

  • “My own work hasn't shown that popular children are mean, but rather that dorkwads and rejects tend to be thin-skinned crybabies."”
