As a parent, you have to ask yourself at what point should I start worrying about my child's behavior problems? We're not talking about your ordinary temper tantrums, but behavior that could be something more serious. Doctor Bradley Wajda with Esano Incorporated helped us identify these behavioral problems.
Dr. Wajda say most parents are confronted with brief episodes of behavior by their children, which leads them to wonder whether or not the behavior is normal. Checklists are available to help parents identify behavioral problems in their children. These check list are intended to give a preliminary idea of when there may be problems. Exasperated parents frequently describe adolescents as significantly more problematic than they really are. When applicable professional examination of the child & their behaviors is important to determine what those behaviors mean.
