Belonging, Status, Popularity, and Rejection

Lecture no. 10 from the course: Raising Emotionally and Socially Healthy Kids

Belonging, Status, Popularity, and Rejection

Taught by Professor Eileen Kennedy-Moore | 29 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Professional Development Courses

What makes some kids popular? Why do some kids have trouble getting along? In this lecture, study the characteristics linked to four research-based categories of social status that children might fall into: well liked, controversial, neglected, and rejected. Explore the hidden risks of popularity and the role of gossip.

Some of this is common sense, but only after having been a parent for a while. I enjoyed watching the videos. The Professor, who I thought was very good, gives personal experience as well as references to published studies to back up her presentation. From her presentation, I can see that my kids are perfectly fine and I am not the worst parent in the world. Though, my 11 year old daughter said it was weird that I was watching the videos. :-)
