Pepper, Floy C.
Reviewed are four reasons for misbehavior in children, and suggested are methods for adults to deal with the misbehavior. It is explained that motivation can be classified according to the following factors: attention getting mechanism (with passive/active and constructive/destructive patterns); power seeking; revenge seeking; and assumed or real disability (a deficiency displayed in order to be left alone). Adult responses to each of the four types of misbehavior are analyzed. (CL)
