Often behaves in socially inappropriate ways:



Think about whether your child really knows the
socially appropriate ways to behave. Your simply telling him is not, by itself,
enough. He needs to try, behave inappropriately, try again, and perhaps behave
inappropriately again. Like other children, he also sometimes behaves badly
even though he knows better. Your goal is successive approximations. This means
your child comes closer to what you expect as time goes on. No child always
behaves well. Your goal only is for him to act more appropriately more of the
time.



Be sure you and others at home are setting good
examples of appropriate behavior. Your child likely will not behave any better
than others in your family.
