Who the word 'behave', 'behavior' etc. should be used on...
I don't think it's right when someone uses the word 'behave' and its other forms of the word on kids and people...I don't even use it on my pets. It sounds demeaning.

The alternative: "act", "acting", etc.

I don't think it's demeaning. But it doesn't really say anything. It's too general, when someone says "behave" what exactly do they even mean by that.
