Behavioural Disorders In Children

  • Humans are social beings and we have certain rules and norms in society. Some children develop serious behavioural issues other than normal and age-appropriate temper tantrum, naughty gestures etc.
  • Teaching good manners to children is not easy. It needs the whole family most of the time. The child observes elders and others around and imitates most of the time. So, parents and other members should set good examples first. It is not uncommon children from broken families develop behavioural disorders and even ends up being criminals.
  • Behavioural Disorders can develop due to a number of causes. In some cases, they are part of congenital anomalies, other physical conditions or intoxication.
  • It is very important to get medical help as early as possible once you observe any abnormal behaviour.  It is not common to get a diagnosis of behavioural disorders before the age of 5.
  • It is not uncommon for a two-year-old to throw temper tantrums or a pre-schooler having problem with sitting still.
  • But such behaviours can be an early sign of a behavioural disorder or any other serious disorder in future like depression, bipolar disorder etc. Behavioural disorders are mostly diagnosed in the school going age or teenage.
  • In many cases, only counselling will not help but active medical intervention with proper diagnosis & treatment is necessary.

Common Behavioural Disorders

Most common among Behavioural Disorders are:

But there others like:

  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
  • Dysthymic Disorder
  • Eating Disorders
  • Learning Disorders
  • Panic Attacks

and a lot many more. The list as you can see, is a long one. Such abnormal behaviour is so annoying and at times dangerous to self and others. It is even harder to manage when they are kids as the case taking will be trickier.

But with patience and professionalism, a proper diagnosis is possible in most cases. Even some food allergies or accidental substance use may manifest as abnormal behaviour in children. So, it is always important to get it right before starting the treatment.
