Main factors for emotional and behavioral problems in children

Updated on February 28, 2013

Child development

Children’s development in general terms is interactive exchange between
the child and the environment. The acquisition of basic emotional
experience helps the child in the course of maturation to form it's sensorimotor
functions.In the mean time the child is perceiving external
objects( all objects from the environment) and this forms it’s cognitive abilities.So during that time the child learns to interact with the inviroment and the main goal is to get good emotional expiriance and avoid the bad.

Emergence of problems

emergence of behavioral and emotional disorders in childhood is
associated not only with the conditions of life, but above all with the child's relationship with others. Behavioral disorders
are characterized by recurring and sustainable model of asocial , aggressive or defiant behavior.

This behavior is more extreme than the normal at this age- childhood naughtiness or teenage disobedience. Factors which can lead to emotional and behavioral disorders can be divided into two large groups-biological and psychiatric.
Biological factors are mostly genetically determined. There are numerous-
genetic damage leading to mental disorders related to the cognitive and emotional development of the individual. Psychiatric factors are associated with events which in one way or another affect the formation of behavioral patterns. In
most cases etiological factors for emotional and behavioral abnormalities are complex. The occurrence of this type disorders is a result of combination between biological
and social factors. Aggression is often a common characteristic of children with behavioral disorders. Aggressiveness in children is manifested in many different forms. It is recognized that aggression is any form of behavior designed to insult or
harm another living creature. Childhood aggression has three main sources. 1.Family-Family can both demonstrate patterns of aggressive behavior and to
support them 2.Peers-Aggressive behavior can be acquired in interactions with
peers 3. The third source of aggressive behavior are the real examples offered
by the mass media
