A child’s behavior is a reflection of how they feel… often how they are being treated. Children act out what they feel. A child who is being mean to another child, calling them names, alienating them from a group, or teasing them is a red flag. These are not by chance. A child will mimic behavior they are being exposed to in one way or another. It doesn’t necessarily have to be a parent, it can be another child on the bus, on the playground, or even a babysitter. A child that is behaving badly is acting out. Talk to them. A child can be empowered to feel and deal with his or her feelings by being acknowledged that what is happening is wrong, instead of having to act it out.
