I have an anthropology question, which may seem silly since I am not an anthropologist myself - just very interested in the field. It is this: it seems that children are often very mean to each other. I think every child experiences teasing by their peers. Every adult in our country probably has memories of being left out, or teased, or somehow having their feelings hurt by their childhood friends. What I am wondering is whether this is cultural, or pretty universal across cultures? Has anyone studied this?
