What Is Distressed Behaviour In Children?
Rebellious behaviour is a normal and healthy part of a child’s development, it's the first stage of learning independence at a young age. While this may frustrating for parents to have to deal with, often these periods will pass. Distressed behaviour in children is far more prolonged and can take many forms including anger, lack of attention, physical and verbal abuse, reluctance to socialise, self-harm and risk of injury to themselves or others.
There are a number of varied and complex factors that could contribute to distressed behaviour and if this is not properly addressed it can contribute to further mental issues in adolescence.
