Childhood Behavioural Issues
Behavioural issues can be mild and subjective or quite obvious. Regardless of this, if, as a parent, you feel that you need advice or help with the management of these issues, ask one of our doctors for advice.
Causes of Childhood Behavioural Issues
Behavioural problems can result from temporary stressors in the child's life, or they might represent more enduring disorders.
While not an exhaustive list, some common disruptive behaviour disorders include:
- Oppositional defiant disorder (ODD)
- Conduct disorder (CD)
- Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
At Jema Clinic, we are here to help with advice, treatment and/or referrals to trained professionals.
