Primary Causes of Misbehavior


Some children find their places by being hated.

Failure has made them give up trying for attention and power. Unfortunately, they find personal satisfaction in being mean, vicious, and violent. They will seek revenge against parents and other children or siblings in any way they can.

They are the children who write on desks in school, beat up other children or siblings, threaten younger children, and vandalize. They are out to get even.

You can identify Revenge as the cause of inappropriate behavior by the feeling the behavior generates within you. When Revenge is the cause of the misbehavior, you will generally feel fearful or Angry.
