Grouping people is putting people with similar personalities/characters/interests together. It's thinking that certain people belong together by how they act or look. Stereotyping is judging people by what they look like, how they dress, who they hang out with, or what their hobbies are. Stereotypes are almost always negative. A common stereotype kids/teens deal with is popularity. Most kids automatically think that if someone is popular, then they're mean and rude. They don't actually meet the person they just assume that.  Stereotyping can affect group relations because since people automatically assume things about someone, then they probably avoid them and half the time they're wrong about the person they're stereotyping. Maybe they are like they're perfect BFF. Maybe they could be their future BFF. Hope this helped:)
