Introduction to Behavioral Disorders

Introduction to Behavioral Disorders

Some children might display behaviour that may seem odd or disagreeable behaviour that may cause the child emotional or social problems. Nevertheless with help, the situation can be improved greatly. Here we learn different behavioural problems.
In today's fast paced world, almost every mother will tell you that she has a problem child on her hands. But this is really not the case. One has to face basic problems and tensions while bringing up any child. But these problems are common to most parents, and are not necessarily symptomatic of a behavioural disorder that requires psychological counselling or treatment.

So what exactly is a behavioural disorder?

Whenever a child displays a pattern of behaviour that does not conform to basic expected or accepted norms of the society that we live in and thereby causes a degree of anxiety or concern to those around her, then that child is termed maladjusted and is displaying a sort of behavioural disorder.
Behavioural disorders can be of many kinds. There are certain habit disorders like enuresis (bed-wetting), thumb-sucking, nail biting, stammering and feeding problems. And then there are personality disorders like shyness, temper tantrums and daydreaming. And worst of all are the delinquency acts like stealing, lying, sexual offences, basic indiscipline and playing truant.

What are the common causes of behavioural disorders?

Children who show the signs of behavioural disorders are facing some problem or the other which they cannot express. The frustration arising out of these problems thus erupts in form of behavioural disorders. Let us take a look at some of the common causes of behavioural disorders in children.
  • Bullying at school
  • Fights between parents
  • Getting beatings from parents constantly
  • Getting scolded by parents regularly
  • Not getting adequate attention and time from parents
  • Poor nutrition and faulty eating habits
  • Improper behaviour of parents towards child and others
  • Dyslexia
  • Autism
  • Divorce or separation of parents
  • Sexual abuse
When children have to face any or some of the above mentioned circumstances, their mental health gets affected. The repercussions of these circumstances give rise to the various symptoms of behavioural problems in them.

How to prevent behavioural problems in children?

The instances of behavioural problems in children are increasing day-by-day. Therefore, parents must take right measures to prevent behavioural problems in children. They must spend adequate time with children and find out what is happening in their day-to-day life, the kind of friends they hang-out with, their teachers etc.
Parents must talk to them every day when they are back from school or at night while going to bed to find out how their day was. A child needs love of both mother and father to grow in a healthy way. So, it is must for both the parents to spend quality time with a child. Spending quality time with children, talking to them on daily basis and paying right attention towards them is very important to help them open-up and share their problems with parents. If children are able to express their problems in a healthy way, behavioural problems can be prevented in them to a greater extent.
It is also necessary to avoid any arguments and fight in front of children. If parents have any differences they must resolve them peacefully when children are not around. It is very necessary to have a happy married life in order to raise happy, healthy and well balanced children. At the same time it is also very important to pay attention at the nutritional requirements of children. If children do not get adequate nutrients, they may suffer with deficiency diseases, which may give rise to the symptoms of behavioural problems in them. And above all, parents must always set examples of good behaviour for their children if they expect the same from them.

I could understand the difficulties of parents with children who have behavioral disorders. We know the child has to be counseled psychologically but we just don't know how to. A friend introduced me to some very interesting teaching. Bad things happen in life for example feeling of sadness, pain, quarrel, being forced to do things out of one's will. Because of this we suffer. Suffering can be overcome and happiness can be attained; true happiness and contentment are possible. Through queiting and calming we can achieve that peace with your heart. The Kechara LAMA TSONGKHAPA Chakra has the energy to stabilise depressed, restless and unhappy minds, calms and clears deluded and angry minds, increases intelligence and wisdom.

Understand that every child is unique and that every child has different inborn capability potential !
Usually, our life course is influenced by our parents, teachers, peers, media and surrounding environment. Lack of awareness of our actual strengths and weaknesses leads us to spend our lives in mediocrity. This goes on generation by generation. Dermatoglyphics Multiple Intelligence Test (DMIT) is a tool to identify our potentials. It works as GPS System in our life. It helps us to know our position and map our direction in life.
