Behavior Challenges

What are Behavior Challenges

Children sometimes argue, are aggressive, act angry or defiant around others. These behaviors become concerning once they are uncommon for the child’s age at the time, persist over a long period of time, occur in more than one setting, impact personal relationships, or safety is an issue. 

Common Behavior Challenges

  • Defiance
  • Physical Aggression
  • Lying
  • Stealing
  • Verbal aggression
