help with "Know it all" son

Recommended Posts

I entered this group to find help in my situation. After months of trying to figure out why my son is being called names by people who use to be his friends, I've learned the truth. My Christian friends, parents of some the kids who use to be friends with him, have confided in me that kids don't like him anymore, because he's a "know it all," correcting everyone. Does anyone know of a children's book, video, tape, anything I can get my hands on to give him some study time on the subject of holding one's tongue, as well as arrogance and disrespect?

Do you think it is being modelled by anyone in the family, ie. husband or yourself?


Sometimes it is a coverup for insecurity. He needs to know he is loved even when he doesn't know it all.


Sometimes he just needs to be told how it is perceived. My daughter is bright and a bit of a know it all. We have been so busy building her up and saying how smart she is for her self esteem that it is now over the top. I try to point out another person's perspective to her and also let her know when her words can seem hurtful.
