Expectations of children in today's society has increased and children who, in some way, express any antisocial behavior that in any way could arouse negative feelings in their surroundings could be seen as someone who’s deviant in relation to what today’s society sees as normal behavior. The purpose of this study was to describe how school counselors view children in the ages thirteen to sixteen who have behaviors were they are acting out or acting in. The main focus of the study has been to see how the school counselors defines these types of behaviors, what gender differences they see between boys and girls, what causes the behavior and what future risks they see for these children. The study was conducted by semistructured interviews with eight school counselors with different age and working experience. The result showed that the children that are acting in, especially the boys, are often overshadowed by children that are acting out because they demand more attention. The school counselors experience certain gender differences between children that are acting out or in and in the way they express these types of behavior.
