Behaviors Related To Attention

Most children gain attention in school or at home in normal, positive ways. However, some children feel that misbehaving is their best way to get attention. These children are the ones who constantly speak out without permission in school or make strange noises at the dinner table that force everyone to stop their conversation and pay attention. Some children will even tell us about all the bad things they have done that day. They are misbehaving in an attempt to gain attention. You can identify Attention as the cause for inappropriate behavior by the feeling the behavior generates within you. When Attention is the reason for the misbehavior, you will generally feel Annoyed.
