Behavioural Difficulties
in children can be a cause of great distress to parents and families. Difficult behaviours may occur individually or may be part of a broader syndrome such as Oppositional Defiance Disorder (ODD). 

Difficult behaviours may include:

  • Tantrums
  • Nagging
  • Sibling rivalry
  • Aggressive behaviour
  • Non-compliance
  • Rule breaking
