Therapists now believe that children have correct perceptions about their problem behaviors and their perceptions and explanations accurately reflect the true situation about their behaviors. Thus therapists now evaluate children's explanations about their problematic behaviors as being truthful and accurate (this is modified when the question relates to children with pathologies that extenuate problematic behavior).
