Behaviour problems

Behaviour problems, often seen in children and adolescents, involve patterns of hostile, aggressive, or disruptive behaviours that last for at least six months and cause problems in school, at home, and in social situations. These behaviours often go beyond what's typically expected for their age group.

Psychologists use various techniques to address behaviour problems, including behaviour therapy, cognitive-behavioural therapy, and social skills training. Parents may also be involved in the treatment, learning strategies to help manage their child's behaviour.

• If your child frequently loses their temper, argues with adults, or actively defies or refuses to comply with adults' requests or rules.
• When your child often blames others for their mistakes or behaviour.
• If the child is easily annoyed or often angry and resentful.
• When the child often acts spiteful or vindictive.
