Behavioral Problems in children

B7 P1

All children are often naughty, defiant, and impulsive from time to time, which is perfectly normal. However, some children have extremely difficult and challenging behaviors that are outside the norm for their age. These problems may result from temporary stressors within the child’s life, or they could represent more enduring disorders as well. Boys are more likely than girls to suffer from behavioral disorders. Misbehavior, in children, if exceeded beyond limits, demands thorough analysis and treatment because it may fall to behavioral disorders. Behavioral Disorders in children evolve when some negative thoughts or problematic behaviors get rewarded unknowingly or unintentionally.
