Did your child make the naughty or nice list? Or do you think the list is missing some names?

Have you ever wondered why your child is constantly in trouble at school and just doesn't seem to be as well-behaved as their peers?

Well, perhaps it's in their name...

A survey conducted by School Stickers found certain names crop up on their 'naughty list' more often than others.

School Stickers, an online stationary store for teachers, looked at the records of more than 59 000 students and 1,1 million rewards which were ordered in a school year to come up with the tongue-in-cheek list.

They studied the list of names of children who constantly came up on the list and children who got awards for being well behaved.
