The End

  • Lack of communication is more common than people realize
    • Occurs in most families
  • It's often a phase as kids turn into teenagers
  • Lack of communication makes parents & children feel disconnected and unheard
  • It changes relationships & dynamics between parents & children
  • Conflict & lack of communication creates hard feelings for both parties
    • This causes further problems
  • Can be lonely for both parties
  • Lack of communication may last forever if unsolved
  • Sometimes to stimulate resolution & communication mediation is required
  • Parents don’t always understand their children & vice versa

What We Know About the Lack of Communication Between Parents & Children...

  • Do most people agree with this theory of a hierarchy in HS?

What We Want To Find Out...

  • First of all, it exists, although some may argue that it does not
  • People outside of these cliques or hierarchies are often considered "outsiders" or "nobodies"
    • However, they are normal & nice, just not considered "popular", but often considered strange or lonely
  • There are levels to these hierarchies
    • Those considered "popular" are at the top, & they are often not the nicest people
    • "The top" is usually a single group or a few groups
  • Being "popular" is desirable to many in the HS environment
    • To feel cool & like you belong
  • To be considered "popular", one usually has to be; attractive, funny, tough, mean, good at sports, etc
  • These hierarchies are extremely cliquey
    • Those "at the top" are often in the same friend group. It is hard to join these groups as they are tight-knit.
    • There are many groups (i.e. jocks, nerds, etc)
