  • Child and Adolescent Violence Research at the NIMH
    The NIMH has gathered information about risk factors, experiences, and processes that are related to the development of aggressive, antisocial, and violent behavior, including mental health problems, particularly depression, associated with childhood and adolescence.

  • CHILDREN WHO STEAL - American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry
    It is normal for a very young child to take something which excites his or her interest. This should not be regarded as stealing until the youngster is old enough, usually three to five years old, to understand that taking something which belongs to another person is wrong. Parents should actively teach their children about property rights and the consideration of others.

  • Children WIthout Friends
    Indeed, about ten percent of school-age children have no friends in their classes and are disliked by a majority of their classmates.

    Dealing with a child who is making fun of another person's race, religion, or disability is a true challenge.

  • Prenatal Smoking and Antisocial Behavior
    First, there is generally consistent evidence to suggest that children who are exposed to maternal smoking during pregnancy are at increased risk of later externalizing behaviors that seem to extend over the life course. There is now evidence of a consistent and replicable association between maternal prenatal smoking and later antisocial behaviors.

  • Preventing Antisocial Behavior In Children
    Antisocial behavior involves "...recurring violations of socially prescribed patterns of behavior," such as aggression, hostility, defiance, and destructiveness (Walker, Colvin, and Ramsey, 1995). Currently, between four and six million children and youth in schools have been identified as antisocial (only some of whom are identified as having an educational disability), and the numbers are increasing (Kazdin, 1993).

  • Preventing Antisocial Behavior in Disabled and At-Risk Students
    Research shows that most antisocial behavior develops from a combination of risk factors associated with individuals, families, schools, and communities.2,3,4 The same factors apply across races, cultures, and classes, and their effects are cumulative exposure to multiple and interacting risk factors exponentially increases a child's overall risk.

  • Spanking by Parents and Subsequent Antisocial Behavior of Children
    Objective: To deal with the causal relationship between corporal punishment and antisocial behavior (ASB) by considering the level of ASB of the child at the start of the study.
