  • I don't know, it seemed to me there was always this group that were the leaders, and they ran the school. They were the ones that were prom queen and king, and were captain of the football team. I don't know if they ever were teased

  • Should say "in elementary"

    Answer by musicmaker at 5:35 PM on Mar. 24, 2013

  • Probably not. Now granted, some are more easily teased than others but, no one can be tease proof. For example, if you give a child the best of everything then eventually they will be called "spoiled" or be teased for being rich & entitled. If a child (especially a girl) is ultra good-looking then others can start to spread rumors about them out of jealousy & insecurity.

  • Nope, there is no such beast. There is always something kids can find to pick on.

  • No. There kmath is correct, but even with that, instead, you need to focus on creating a child that understands the ways of the world and is ready to deal with them... not sheltering....
