  • Says, "I don't care" nonverbally too—through behavior and attitudes.

  • Usually fails to take materials to school.

  • Doesn't do homework or other chores.

  • Inattentive.

  • Shows disgust or lack of interest in activities all the time.

  • Makes up any kind of excuse that he or she thinks will work in the situation, especially "I forgot."

  • Doesn't follow directions.

  • Doesn't listen.

  • Doesn't do well academically.

  • Often, in trouble in more than one class—and out of school as well.

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.
