Attention Deficient (or Inattentiveness)
Attention deficiency is one of the most common disorders in children and can continue through adolescence and adulthood. Afflicted children show difficulty in controlling behaviour and display hyperactivity. This condition may also be present in children who are mostly inactive and quiet.
Some of the children may express their defiance by arguing, disrupting, disobeying, displaying oppositional behaviour or talking back to their parents, teachers, authoritative figures, or other adults. When this behaviour lasts longer than six months and is excessive compared to what is usual for the child's age...
Fears & Phobias
Children can struggle with different kind of fears. They may suffer silently or be vocal about it. Sometimes, it is difficult to even tell whether the child is normal or is affected by a disorder of sorts. This can affect children of all age groups.
Hyperactivity is a common behavioural disorder in which the child shows impaired attention and concentration. It affects many school bound children, where boys appear more prone than girls to this disorder. Such a disorder impairs the child’s ability to function normally socially, academically and at home.
Poor Eating (Anorexia nervosa) / Eating Disorder
There are many children suffering from poor eating habits. While there may other possible reasons of such a disorder, in many cases it is due to psychological factors.
Children and adolescents need at least eight to nine hours of sleep per night. Sleep problems or lack of sleep can have negative effects on children's academic performance in school, extra-curricular activities, in social behaviour or relationships.
Undue Anxiety Disorder
Anxiety is a normal part of childhood and every child goes through such a phase that may be temporary and harmless. However, children who suffer from anxiety disorders experience fear, nervousness, shyness, etc. continuously over a period of six months or more. Over time, they start avoiding certain places and activities.
