Childhood behaviour problems can become life long
Bad behaviour patterns in childhood can result to bigger problems later in life, reports The Telegraph.
About 7% of nine to 15 year olds are affected by serious behavioural problems during their time at school. A study, charted 3,500 British people at two stages of their life – when they were 13-15 and between 36-53, comparing their behaviour in their school years to their current life situation.
Dr Ian Colman, from the University of Alberta’s School of Public Health in Canada, said: “Adolescents who engaged in (disruptive) behaviour had poorer mental health, less successful family lives, and poorer social and economic outcomes in adulthood.”
