Misbehaving with one parent

The traditional approach says that a kid's misbehavior should be found across various settings, so if they behave well at school or with one parent and not the other , the problem is behavioral – a product of poor parenting.  CPS does not see kids being ' ODD'  all the time , but rather there are certain conditions where the demands of the situation outstrip the kid's skills that trigger the ' looking bad' type of behavior. We need to identify the various situations, conditions, the lagging skills, the child's concerns and the care giver's concerns in order to teach the lagging skills and solve problems 

Here is my response to a mom whose kid misbehaves  with her  but  is alright at school or with her husband.
