The Test Challenger

Behavior: How exactly is my child behaving?

  • Does more than just moan and groan about tests in school. Challenges teacher's fairness in giving tests.

  • Seeks concessions, such as taking a different kind of test or being tested after the class is tested.

  • Tries to put parent in an adversarial position with the teacher.

  • Challenges on the basis that he or she has another test that day or too much work in another class.

  • Complains—seriously.

  • Argues over correctness of answers.

  • Continues to fight after the test is graded.

  • Tries to upset other children.

Please Note
We are labeling behaviors, not children! For the sake of convenience, we will describe behaviors with terms such as The Whiner or The Interrupter.

Never use such labels when talking to—or about—children! Doing so could cause many new problems and seriously damage the teacher-student or parent-child relationship.
