Family - 2 Tha mo mhac modhail I put - "My son is well behaved" - you said it was wrong as the your answer was "My son is well-behaved". Which is the same thing, except that you do not give the option to hyphenate the "well-behaved". I suggest you correct this error, please.

In Scotland I would use ¨good¨ to describe a child´s behaviour rather than the formal ¨well behaved¨. Surely ¨good¨ should be accepted as a correct answer.
