Experts say that it’s not unusual for kids to behave differently in different settings. And after all, we have to expect a child to act one way at a friend’s birthday party and another when visiting the grandparents. But the behavior of some kids – especially the behavior of those with issues like anxiety, learning disabilities, ADHD, and autism can vary much more markedly, especially when they’re at home versus school. This discrepancy will leave parents puzzled.
Stephanie Lee, PsyD, a clinical psychologist at the Child Mind Institute, said that children with ADHD, anxiety, autism, and learning disabilities “may be using a lot of their resources to follow directions or cope in the classroom.” Once all these kids get home, “it’s challenging for them to conjure up the same amount of resources to manage.” Also, she added that many kids benefit from the consistency, structure, predictability, and routine that come with their school environment. And it shouldn’t be repeated at home “because that’s not how life works.”

But for most kids, academic and social demands at school are beyond what they typically face at home, Dr. Lee pointed out, that may trigger problem behaviors they don’t exhibit at home. Example, children with social anxiety who worry about how they’re being perceived by others, or children who have anxieties relating to performance, might have fewer problem behaviors at home but when they get to school and have to do math or read a passage aloud, they might engage in some negative behaviors to avoid that. “Acting out in this particular situation might end up being functional for them because if they act a little silly, the teacher might scold them, but then they move on,” Dr. Lee said.
