My son is 8 years old and is having behavioral problems. One of his issues is playing dumb. He always acts like he doesn't know what he's supposed to be doing and is always leaving his belongings everywhere in a careless manor. The next issue is behavior at school. At a parent teacher conference we were informed that he gets constant reminders to stop fooling around. His teacher pulls him aside each morning to remind him of how his day should go. By the end of the day he gets spoken to several times.
