Are you noticing any changes in the behavior of your child in recent months? Behavior is the manner in which you behave or act specifically toward others in response to an event or situation. Growing children, particularly teenagersundergo rapid changes both physically and emotionally. It is essential to be aware of children’s behavior and observe rapid changes.
According to Dr. Elaprolu Madhavi, a clinical psychologist/behavioral therapist at the Fernandez Child Development Center (FCDC), changing children’s behavior is related to everything they are going through.
Parents must help the child aware of the need and the availability of proper care and support in this difficult time in their lives, according to the expert.
What are the signs of problematic behavior among children?
The term “behaviour” can mean difficult or undesirable in the event that the behaviour is not appropriate for the child’s age, the stage of development or culture. It is the cause of concern when a child’s behavior is incompatible with the rights of other people or poses a risk of harm to the child or other adults, children and living creatures.
Dr. Madhavi states that parents should be concerned if their child is causing harm to the environment, learning difficulties, relationship problems, or starts appearing shy or passive.
