I am worried about my 9 year old sons behaviour -at school,

Customer Question

i am worried about my 9 year old sons behaviour -at school, home and in company. He is disobedient , harrasses his baby brother, doesnt seem to have manners - just very difficult and naughty - should i be giving him some kind of therapy? I realise shouting doesnt make things better but it seems all i can do at times.

This is Dr. David
yes, he needs to be supported and assessed by school counselors and psychotherapist and teachers and parents and family.
you should talk to his teachers at regular school parent teacher meetings.
you should talk to his pediatrician about his behaviors and get him referred for evaluation by child psychologist and child behavioral experts.
he might benefit from therapy after proper assessment and diagnosis.
he might be found to have an attention deficient disorder possibly.
I know his behavior can be very frustrating.
work on cutting down and then eliminating preservatives and sugars in his foods and improving his diet.
I hope these suggestions help
