    Child Behavior Disorders

    All kids misbehave some times, but behavior disorders go beyond mischief and rebellion. With behavior disorders, your child or teen has a pattern of hostile, aggressive or disruptive behaviors for more than 6 months. Warning signs can include:

    • Harming or threatening themselves, other people or pets
    • Damaging or destroying property
    • Lying or stealing
    • Not doing well in school, skipping school
    • Early smoking, drinking or drug use
    • Early sexual activity
    • Frequent tantrums and arguments
    • Consistent hostility towards authority figures
