Behaviors At School

The Arrogant

Behavior: Specific attitudes and actions of this child at home and/or at school.

  • Generally very bright.

  • Has an inflated ego.

  • May excel in one area, such as athletics, and be arrogant as a result.

  • Often ill-mannered and disrespectful of classmates, teachers, and parents.

  • Probably behaves equally badly at home.

  • Often questions the purpose of teacher decisions, requests, and/or assignments.

  • Will speak out and say things like "This is dumb," or indicate that others don't measure up in some way.

  • Always seems to be asking, "Why?" in a belittling manner.

  • Often fails to complete routine assignments or comply with basic rules and regulations.

  • Questions teacher's knowledge and authority, and will often present facts and ideas in the hope of contradicting the teacher or showing that the teacher's knowledge, performance, or thinking is inadequate.

  • Does not appear to like other people.

  • Acts superior. However, the key to this behavior is that the student makes him/herself look superior by making others look inferior.

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.
