Tune in to Charlotte View conversation with NC licensed mental health, Dr.Jeffrey LaForge, MSW, LCSW, who will talk about children behavioral disorders such as ADHD
Call (805) 830-8344
Nearly one in five high school age boys in the United States and 11 percent of school-age children over all have received a medical diagnosis of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, according to new data from the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. 
In March the National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) issued a raft of recommendations to help parents deal with children who have repeated behavioural problems.
According to NICE, conduct disorders develop as children get older, affecting 7% of boys and 3% of girls aged five to 10 years old, and 8% of boys and 5% of girls aged 11 to 16 years old.
All kids misbehave some times. And some may have temporary behavior problems due to stress. For example, the birth of a sibling, a divorce, or a death in the family may cause a child to act out. Behavior disorders are more serious. They involve a pattern of hostile, aggressive, or disruptive behaviors for more than 6 months. The behavior is also not appropriate for the child's age.
  • Harming or threatening themselves, other people or pets
  • Damaging or destroying property
  • Lying or stealing
  • Not doing well in school, skipping school
  • Early smoking, drinking or drug use
  • Early sexual activity4
  • Frequent tantrums and arguments
  • Consistent hostility towards authority figures

Warning signs can include:
