The Rebel

Behavior: How exactly is my child behaving?

  • Easy to identify. Everything he or she does says, "I'm a rebel."

  • Wants to be different.

  • Dresses uniquely.

  • Does not accept the values of others, especially those in authority.

  • Outspoken, bitter, and seems to be against everything.

  • Disruptive.

  • Seldom cooperates.

  • Always knows what he or she is against, but doesn't always know what he or she favors.

  • Thinks others can't understand his or her individuality, are unfair in this regard, and are the cause of his or her unhappiness.

  • Though regarded as a troublemaker by children and parents alike, often does not see himself or herself that way.

  • May see himself or herself as a champion for other children.

  • In truth, does not trust anyone very much, including himself or herself.

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.
