Hi! Teachers,
I'd like to ask why be behaved is used here instead of behave. Is it because the verb imply the meaning of behave yourself? But behave can also be used as a vi., right?

You have to use behaved because you need an adjective. Behave can only function as a verb.

The children will soon be badly behaved. (adjective)
The children will soon behave badly. (simple tense verb)
The children will soon be behaving badly. (future progressive tense verb)
