What is the difference between these two verbs?
1) se comporter
2) se conduire

Could I use "se conduire" in the following sentences?
1) Les enfants se sont bien comportés à la messe.
2) David s’est comporté comme un grand garçon.
3) Pierre s’est mal comporté.

Thanks in advance.

    Yes, in all three.

    "se conduire" is a figurative synonym of 'se comporter'.

    Although, you can't use 'se conduire' when saying 'se comporter vis-à-vis de quelqu'un'
    It is the only case I think of.
