What does a smaller head mean?
My child has a smaller head when compared to her classmates, and on of her classmates said that people will smaller heads are stupid. This is weird coming from the friend since they both are in an Advance Placement Program.
So, my question is: Does a smaller head mean you`re stupid?
Thanks in advanced!
Head size is the result of many factors, as is intelligence, if she is in the advanced placement program, it is likely that they (both her and her friend) are above normal in intelligence and head size has nothing to do with it.
