Can we get more specific?

Usually when people talk about "acting out" they mean that someone is expressing frustration, anger, distress, etc. through actions. For example, a kid's using drugs wouldn't be considered acting out unless the goal is, e.g., to annoy adults as retribution for their being overly strict.

I disagree drug use in children (and in some cases adults) is always considered an acting out behavior.--Etenne BLSmileyface.png 14:22, 14 October 2016 (UTC)
So for example: As a MAP, if you were walking down the street and said hello to a child who you happen to pass by, that would also be considered as acting out as well as grooming. --Etenne BLSmileyface.png 14:28, 14 October 2016 (UTC)
