Being Accepted and Popular at Middle School

Filed under: children — admin @ 8:05 am

At school, there is always the issue of being accepted and popular among girls. To be accepted often means you become one of them spending hours on absolutely stupid tittle-tattle. Being a good school performer may very likely exclude you from the group because you are too far above the rest of the group. It does not give you a good feeling to get an A when others are struggling with C or D. My son once told me, “You don’t want to share your good grade with others unless you want to be excluded.”

To this I keep telling my children, unless you can transcend the boundary of your environment, you are forever one of the herd, a mediocre and an obscurity. Not bad to be among the majority of humanity.
