Conduct disorders are common among children today. It is reckoned that as many as one out of four, of 9-year olds to 17-year olds suffer from a form of conduct disorder. Whether they start appearing during childhood or adolescence, such conduct disorders make it difficult for kids to live a healthy and positive lifestyle. This is because such disabilities can also affect their relationships with their friends and family, not to mention their confidence and self-perception.
Kids who have conduct disorders can be easily recognised during their early years. Most children who have conduct disorders appear to be tough, aggressive and confident. However, this is just an act; they think they have to put up. In reality, they tend to feel very insecure about themselves, and easily perceive other people as a threat.
Conduct disorders are the result of a combination of both nature and nurture. Often, environmental factors contribute largely to the development of conduct disorders in children. Whatever the reason may be, it is essential to know that conduct disorders can be effectively treated with the right support and approach. This is where Ask Amy comes in.
