7. Rico is a young boy in your program. Like other boys his age, he engages in mildly inappropriate rough-and-tumble play from time to time, but he is not what some people would label a “problem child.” This afternoon, he put a towel around his neck and shouted “Super Rico!” as he jumped on two other children reading quietly in the library area. He hit the children a few times and then grabbed their book and ran away, laughing and yelling, “I saved the magic book!”

What is the most probable source of Rico’s violent activity? Why?

Do you think that Rico’s behavior is a sign that he has been abused or that he has -witnessed someone close to him being abused? Why or Why Not?
