p>Neurobehavioral researchers at Rush University Medical Center(RNBC) in Chicago have found three key factors in a child’s behavior that can lead to social rejection.
According to the study, a child who experiences social rejection ( some form of rejection by their peers like getting bullied and
snubbed by peers) is likely suffer from academic failure, drop out of school, experience depression or anxiety, and experiment with drugs.
Findings from the pair of studies indicate that the ability to pick up on non-verbal cues and social cues in social interaction as well as recognize the meaning and respond appropriately to them are key to helping children develop skills to maintain friendships and avoid a host of problems in later life.
Study results are published in the Journal of Clinical Child and Adolescent Psychology.
