Why do kids talk to adults in disrespectful ways? I believe children and teens do a lot of things because they don't know how to express emotions appropriately. They learn a lot from watching other kids and people around them. If your daughter is frustrated and doesn't know how to show it, and she sees somebody else roll their eyes and make a face, shell absorb that lesson without even thinking about it. Then the next time shes frustrated at home, shell roll her eyes and make a face at you. If she gets a reaction, that will often just reinforce the behavior, because she knows shes gotten to you. Dont kid yourself: if you threaten your child by saying, Don't do that to me, young lady, or you'll be grounded, that will only make her do it more.
Parents often ask me, How do you differentiate between disrespectful, sassy or fresh language and abusive language? I believe these behaviors are found on a continuumlets call it the Inappropriate Verbal Response Continuum. They are triggered by your childs emotions: primarily frustration, anger and a need to get back at others when he thinks something is unfair. On one end of the continuum is abuse. The intent of abusive language is generally a personal attack upon another person. Its meant to hurt the other person and make them feel small and afraid. Verbal abuse often includes foul language and disturbing threats of violence designed to intimidate the other person to get them to give in.
Originally Published on Teacher CastOK, so there are some guys out there who would have been better fathers if theyd been born into the species of praying mantis known as the Mantis Religiosa. Theyre possibly the only species whose reproduction depends on the male getting their heads ripped off by the female of the species before copulation.
