Children who are teased while participating in sports or doing exercises may have lower quality-of-life scores than those who are not teased, according to researchers who surveyed 108 children, ages 9 to 12. They found that the negative effect of teasing on physical activity persisted over time. The findings appear in the Journal of Pediatric Psychology.
