The Show-Off

Behavior: How exactly is my child behaving?

  • Seeks attention from everyone until he or she receives it.

  • Recognizes no boundaries to his or her attention-seeking behavior.

  • Engages in unexpected and unacceptable behavior.

  • Doesn't know when to quit.

  • Following one incident, begins thinking of something else he or she can do.

  • Different from the class clown; the show-off is serious. This child brags, shows how high he or she can jump, demonstrates intelligence over others, and does anything he or she can to show superiority.

  • Likes to perform in presence of opposite sex.

  • Makes quick responses to all stimuli.

  • Self-centered and inconsiderate of others.

  • May or may not be a good student academically.

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.
