The politics of the playground: lack of athletic skill often means loneliness and peer rejection
Date:10/19/2007

te smoking, marijuana use and alcoholism, as well as an increased risk of school drop out and depression.

Given the proven negative impact of loneliness on a childs well being, this kind of research is an important endeavor, says Causgrove Dunn. Its important to identify and understand the factors that might increase a child's likelihood of being accepted by the peer group, because this, in turn, decreases the likelihood of that child experiencing the destructive psychosocial and emotional problems that often come with rejection.

The conclusions of the studybelieved to be the first to look at the relationship between loneliness and perceptions of athletic competence in elementary school childrenare based on responses from 208 children in Grades 4 through 6 at seven different elementary schools in a western Canadian city. Ninety-nine boys and 109 girls completed questionnaires used to measure childrens loneliness levels in school, as well as self-perceived athletic ability. Researchers also asked participants to rate the athletic ability of their classmates and identify the classmates who they most liked and who they least liked in order to assess peer rejection and peer acceptance.
