Behavioral problems in children could be a behavioral disorder such as oppositional defiant disorder (ODD), conduct disorder or a pattern of negative, defiant and disobedient behavior where your child repeatedly and persistently defies rules and the rights of others without concern or empathy.

Listening to your teen and valuing her ideas is what promotes the ability of parents to effectively communicate with teenagers. But, most parents do not listen well because they are too busy — with work, community, church, and home responsibilities. Listening to a teen does not mean giving advice and attempting to correct the situation. Parents need to talk to their children about what is right and wrong and about appropriate and inappropriate behavior. There will be times when teens won’t like what you say or will act as though they don’t like you. Being your child’s friend is not your role as a parent. It’s important to resist the urge to win their favor or try too hard to please them.

How can you tell if your teen’s behavior is a problem? Could it be just normal teenage rebellion? How much distress, disruption, and heartache are your child’s problems causing? Are they affecting the family, your marriage, you, the child herself?
