Children and teenagers can be really naughty and defiant every now and then, which essentially is “part of growing up”. These mini tantrums are usually temporary. However, if outbursts and fits persist regularly, your child may have behavioural issues or psychosocial disorders.
These behavioural issues are basically responses from sensory inputs (what the senses collect/acquire from the environment) and brain processing (how they understand concepts), genetic commands (inherited traits from parents), and physical impairments such as ADHD/ADD, Autism, and others.
Young people are vulnerable to their environment–family members, friends, home condition, school activities, etc.–demanding effort and time for them to respond. However, those with behavioural issues inevitably remain indifferent, impulsive, aggressive, or often times deviant to authority or to anybody/anything around them.
For example, they could get involve into more violent physical fights in school, may lie and steal, and do something damaging to others without any sign of remorse or guilt. These and all other harmful behaviours can interfere and affect a child’s development.
Those with behavioural issues also find it difficult to make friends and keep relationships. They may be quite bright in class but they will not do well in school as they can also be disruptive.
On the inside, they also experience worthlessness seeing that they cannot do anything right leading to isolation and depression.It would also be very easy for them to blame others for their difficulties and problems if they would not know how to change for the better.
