behave

Apparently, the word behave is a confusing word for kids to deal with. Allow me to give you some examples....

Amya: Why aren't they being have? (upon seeing some very rowdy kids)

Elena : I be-NOT-have (when Keith asked her if she was going to behave)
Keith : What does be-not-have mean?
Elena: It means be not good.

Obviously they get the meaning of the word, but the conjugation of it is a completely different story. :)
