Signs That Your Child May Need Behavior Therapy

Children misbehave. Sometimes it might be simple: your child becomes focused on play and forgets something they’re supposed to do, or they don’t think about their behavior. Other times, it’s part of development, where your child is testing boundaries and limitations as they develop emotionally and mentally. However, behavior that becomes disruptive to your child’s development or others is a sign that your child may need behavioral help. The behavior could be due to major stress, changes, or a behavioral disorder. What Is a Behavior Disorder? Behavior disorders are patterns of disruptive or aggressive behavior that are inappropriate to the child’s age and last for longer than 6 months.
