We have to evaluate a TV show character that depicts a childhood behavior disorder. I dont watch any shows that have that, and google isnt much help...does anyone watch a show that might display it? It has to be a child, or I would do Michael Schofield from prison break but I am CLUELESS on a child?!

this is the actual assignment

Examine television characters that portray child behavior that could be considered abnormal. Provide details about the behavior, including how other characters react to it. Were there stereotypes about abnormal behavior that were being used deliberately by the producers and what effect they are pursuing?

Oh, a child? I was going to say Monk

I don't watch shows with kids in them, now, and the kiddie shows my kids watch don't have this. Hmmm.... Man, that's a hard one.

Parenthood has a child with autism.

I got nothing for just a bad kid.

*lurking* but could you use a cartoon? Like Stewie from Family Guy or one of the Simpson kids?

My darling says Caillou, as he is SO not a fan~LOL! I'm not sure it quite fits the bill.

There is also a Yoplait commercial with teen girls where the Mom swaps the Yoplait, and the daughter swaps her boyfriend.

There is a show called "the middle" their son brick has a lot of social issues. It's a comedy but still can be used. He does this thing where at the end of a sentence he will whisper the last few words.

I think the key there is "that PORTRAY child behavior" -- So you are looking for someone who portrays one of the child like behaviors. If you take Erik Eriksons Psychosocial stages such as -- Initiative vs. Guilt -- if you have ever watched House MD you can talk about House -- he is a good one with that stage.


Look at that -- I FINALLY put my 55,000 dollar Masters Degree in Psych to use! How about that! LOL

You could have a field day writing about House himself and all the issues he has. Trust v. Mistrust... and a whole gaggle of other psychologists models.
