I Include, How About You?
We all know what it is like to feel left out or ostracised. Being left out of a group can lead to feelings of sadness, anger, and loneliness. At the 2nd annual USA Science and Engineering Festival, FABBS Foundation and Howard University demonstrated how ostracism can be studied in the lab. Psychological science allows us to better understand ostracism so that we can make things better for kids and adults.
We want all kids to feel like they belong.

Read how others are making people feel included:
"I talked to a girl who was lonely, who was waiting to be seated at the restaurant tonight."
"I push Daisy on the swing."
"One day I saw Jennifer sitting by herself so I walked over and talked to her. Now we hang out all the time and my mother says she's like my sister."
"I started talking to this one girl who always sits alone at lunch, but wears t-shirts of my favorite band every week. Turns out we both love Maroon 5!"
"Every day I used to sit by myself a lot but then one day Troy walked over and asked me to play soccer with him. Now I always look for other people who might be shy like me so I can ask them to play."
