Common Behavioural Problems in Small Kids You Should Not Ignore

It is a universal fact that nobody is perfect. Although every parent wants his child to have maximum positive attitude and behaviour possible, kids do have bouts of bad behaviour which are sometimes intolerable as well. Read on to learn about some behavioural problems of kids you should not ignore.

Children may have temper tantrums or they would talk back to their parents or teachers. Well, behavioural problems with children depend on the age, surrounding and bringing up of a particular child. Although, some of the problems are obvious and natural and you should ignore them, but there are certain problems that if ignored result in serious ones later on.

Children, especially teens can argue with their parents or even become hostile when they are tired or are not feeling well. Some children lie just out of habit or to take themselves out of certain situation. This is normal and should be taken lightly but at the same time you should also keep an eye on his behaviour so that lying does not become a habit of your child.

What is Normal and What is Not?

Children misbehave or have
behavioural problems
when something goes abnormal in their life. Perhaps a death in the family or regular arguments of parents or even bullying in the school might affect a child’s behaviour. If you find sudden change in the behaviour of your child, you should find out whether there is some reason behind it or not. Try to restore confidence and provide extra care to the child so that he comes out of this stressful period. You can also take professional help if necessary.

What Causes Behavioural Problems in Kids?

Sometimes when care giving is not proper or there is problem in the family, it affects a child’s behaviour badly. If there is a family history of behavioural problems or mood problems or there is exposure to any kind of violence, children develop the symptoms of behavioural disorder. Their difficult behaviour is often a reaction to the situation and circumstances.

Behavioural Problems You Should not Ignore

Here are some behavioural problems in kids which should not be overlooked by parents.

Butting in When You Talk

Most of the children have the habit of interrupting when their parents talk to someone else. You should not ignore it because perhaps your child is excited to tell you something or ask you something important in his view. But allowing your child to interrupt will make him unconcerned about others and so, you should tell your child that when you are making a call or talking to your friend he will have to wait till you are finished.

Rude Behaviour with Playmates

When you find that your child is rude while playing with other children or hits them, you should confront the behaviour immediately. Make him realise how he would feel if the same thing happens to him.

Acting as if He is Not Hearing You

If you are telling your child more than two or three times to do something that he does not like, you should not ignore this behaviour. Walk near to him and ask him to look at you and then ask him to do what exactly you want him to do.

Showing Attitude

You might find it humorous when your preschooler imitates an older child, but stop this kind of behaviour immediately. Make him realise the effects of that behaviour.

Helping Himself a Treat

Although it looks good that your little one takes out cookies or biscuits on his own for himself, but this habit gets carried on. Stop this by making certain house rules and make sure they are followed.


Check the overstating behaviour of your child as soon as possible. Talk to your child regarding this when he is alone.

Parents must help children to curb such kind of behaviour because it will be very difficult for them if these habits are carried on later in life. Early intervention and right management on part of parents is very important to help children deal with behavioural problems which are taken for granted otherwise.
