  11. 11. Antisocial Behavior It is characterized by a long-standing pattern of a disregard for other people’s rights, often crossing the line and violating those rights. It usually begins in childhood or as a teen and continues into their adult lives.
  12. 12. How can parents and teachers help children make friends? • Expose the children to kid-rich environments (e.g. playgrounds, park) • Create a play group in your class and let the children mingle with their classmates. • When your children hit other children, remind them that their behavior hurts others. • Coordinate with the parents and other teachers so that the children will have greater opportunity to interact with other children.
  13. 13. Self control Once children reach school age, they begin to take pride in their capacity to exert effort. They like receiving feedbacks from their parents and teachers. This becomes a great opportunity for parents and teachers to encourage positive emotional responses from children by acknowledging their mature, compassionate behaviors.
