Abstract/Description: Human behavior has always been of interest to man. Through the ages he has observed, studied and tried to explain in various ways the conduct of his fellowman. We now interpret the fables, myths and proverbs that have been handed down through history as accumulated wisdom, concerning man's behavior. While man has always been interested in behavior, it has only been in the past few decades that the social sciences have turned to the study of child behavior. We as teachers are especially interested in the reasons for delinquency, truancy, and the other types of behavior problems observed in the classrooms that hinder learning. It was previously felt that any deviation from normal on the part of the child was a necessary evil to be endured until he outgrew it. It is now known that there is some underlying cause for this behavior that probably had its beginning in infancy and has continued on through the child's development. If it is not corrected it may go on into adulthood. Until very recently the study of behavior was started with problem cases, and worked back to infancy, instead of beginning the study from the time of infancy and continuing through the process of the development of the child. This study made by the different sciences has enabled the teacher to gain some knowledge for the causes of the behavior found in the classroom.
