Expert Clinical Psychologist Müjde Yahşi gave important information about the subject. Behavior problem, occurring in children or adults; Behaviors that disturb those around them, intense, continuous and not suitable for the developmental period.
Is your behavior in the child Normal? or is it Abnormal? 4 signs indicating that
- First of all, we should look at the age and development of the child.E.g; While it is normal for a 2,5-year-old to be stubborn and selfish, these traits are abnormal for a 10-year-old.."
- We have to look at the intensity of the behavior in question. “E.g; If the adolescent child shows his anger with aggressive attitudes, it is not normal if he cannot control his anger."
- We have to look at the continuity of the behavior in question. “E.g; It is not normal for a child over the age of 5 to have wet the bottom for at least 3 months."
- We should observe if he / she behaves in accordance with his sexual identity.
So; We expect a boy to behave like a boy, and a girl like a girl.
During the development process, there are constant changes in the child's behavior, this is completely normal. Just as the child is developing physically, that is, he / she gets taller and gains weight; The child also shows cognitive, emotional and social developments. All of these developments affect the child's behavior positively or negatively. As the child develops, there will certainly be ups and downs, but the main issue is whether there is a root problem underlying the behavior of the child. .
For this reason, do not immediately label your child in the face of a behavior that disturbs you, try to understand why your child actually shows this behavior. Remember that parents should be the most important observers and guides in the healthy development of their child.
