Behaviour Problems Among Children - Tips For Parents!

Diagnosis & Management of Behavioural Disorders in Children

Disruptive behavioural disorders are complicated and may include many different factors working in combination. For example, a child who exhibits the delinquent behaviours of Conduct Disorder may also have ADHD, Anxiety, Depression, and a difficult home life. 

Diagnosis methods may include:

  1. Diagnosis by a specialist: Paediatrician, Psychologist or Child Psychiatrist.
  2. In-depth Interviews with the parents, child and teachers.
  3. Behaviour check lists or standardised Questionnaires.
  4. A diagnosis is made if the child’s behaviour meets the criteria for disruptive behaviour disorders in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders from the American Psychiatric Association.

It is important to rule out acute stressors that might be disrupting the child’s behaviour. For example, a sick parent or victimising by other children might be responsible for sudden changes in a child’s typical behaviour and these factors have to be considered initially.

How can habit disorders affect behaviour?

Most children develop certain repetitive behaviours at an early age, but it is the frequency, persistence or its effects on the overall well-being of the child which could qualify it as a ‘Disorder’. These habits include

  1. Repetitive sucking of the thumb
  2. Biting of the nails
  3. Hitting his own self
  4. Pulling at his own hair
  5. Holding on to his breath just for the sake of it

This refers to the behavioural issues of your child which cause the child to misbehave more often; this can be due to a variety of reasons such as Improper Parenting, Persistent Family problems, Child Abuse or Neglect, or any other incident that has traumatised the child in the past, both Psychological problems or Medical illnesses etc.

Preventive Measures:

  1. Respect Others Space - Your child may be very excited to tell you about some special event or happening in school, but teach him not to interrupt you when you are at work. He must learn to respect other people’s space and have patience while dealing with people. Otherwise, he would not be able to take rejections and thus be inconsiderate in his attitude.
  2. Adjustment with Peers - Monitor how he behaves with his playmates. Stop him when he happens to fight with his playmates or fights with them aggressively and teach him how exactly to behave with people.
  3. Firm Discipline - You should deal with stubbornness with a bit of high-handedness. Look at your child right into the eye and tell him what is expected of him. Be tough, but not rude.
  4. Balance Independence - Monitor his use of PCs, laptops and mobiles. Well, that doesn’t mean you need to loom over everything he does on his gadget, but do try to watch over the content whether it is inappropriate or not. But remember to never really pry and barge into his privacy. Respect that and you can still humour him.

Treatment of behavioural disorders in children

Untreated children with behavioural disorders may grow up to be dysfunctional adults. Generally, the earlier the intervention, the better the outcome is likely to be.  Treatment is usually multifaceted and depends on the particular disorder and various factors contributing to it, which may include:

  1. Parental education – For example, teaching parents how to communicate with and manage their children.
  2. Family therapy The entire family is helped to improve communication and problem-solving skills.
  3. Cognitive behavioural therapy – To help the child to control their thoughts and behaviour.
  4. Social training – The child is taught important social skills, such as how to have a conversation or play cooperatively with others.
  5. Anger management The child is taught how to recognise the signs of their growing frustration and given a range of coping skills designed to defuse their anger and aggressive behaviour. Relaxation techniques and stress management skills are also taught.
  6. Support for associated problems – For example, a child with a learning difficulty will benefit from professional support.
  7. Use of Reinforcement – Many children with behavioural disorders experience repeated failures at school and in their interactions with others. Encouraging the child to excel in their particular talents (such as sport) can help to build self-esteem using positive reinforcements both verbal and non-verbal.
  8. Medication – To help control impulsive behaviours if required so.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Hello lybrate-user, The symptoms you have described certainly point towards a neurological problem. Repeated vomiting is often caused by increased pressure around the brain (Medical term- Intracranial Pressure) and leads to 6th nerve palsy, which means squinting of one or both eyes towards the nose. Patching is done so that child does not suffer from double vision. Spectacles have no role in this. In most conditions, These nerve palsies recover spontaneously in few months without squint surgery. However, you need to keep a close watch on the child's general condition. In case of any abnormal behaviour, consult a neurologist/ pediatric neurologist. Feel free to contact me in case of any doubt. I would like to see the child's photograph before and after developing the squint to guide you better.

Hi, for 3 months old baby, you should have started with liquid diet (and not solid first) like'daal-ka-paani'chawal-ka-paani' home-made curd. And after 1&1/2 to 2 months, should start with semi-liquid diet like mashed banana, well-cooked mashed boiled potato, well-cooked mashed rice, well-cooked mashed daal, mashed apple and mashed biscuits.

Well as long as her physical growth and psychomotor development is normal e.g. If The baby is able to hold her head responsive playful it can be a normal variation in drawing the attention of parents. Make sure she is feeding well gaining weight close 30 grams per day and being looked after well. I will not consider it a serious problem. But you need to take an opinion of a pediatrician for het proper evaluation and your own satisfaction.

My son is going to be seven this August. He suffers from season change/temperature change (sitting in car with a. C on) allergy which leads to stuffy nose very often. This has been happening since around 2.5 years. How to deal with it?

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician, Ghaziabad
Dear , as you yourself have observed, your son has what v call allergic rhinitis (in other words, he has allergy, one factor being sudden temp change. Since he has this for over 2 years, he might have to be given specific nasal sprays. But please start these only under medical supervision. One good news is, this condition can disappear by itself, as it appeared! gud luck!
