Secondary Needs Being Revealed

Gregariousness

This is a child’s need to associate with a group. This need is strong in children who really want to be part of a particular group at school or in the neighborhood.

This need, if unmet, also causes children to be very upset if they are left out of a party, not chosen for a committee, not asked for input on family activities, or if decisions are imposed on them with no explanations.

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.
