The Smartmouth

Effects: How does my child’s behavior affect other people at home and in school?

  • Parents, teachers, and peers feel insulted and alienated.

  • Learning situations are constantly delayed and interrupted.

  • Fights and arguments are usually started by this child's behavior.

  • Everybody's time is wasted.

  • Others may be shocked and offended by the bad language.

  • Some other children may purposely get this child started—and then keep him or her going.

  • Other children—especially serious children—don't want the smartmouth around.

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.
