Frequently Asked Questions
Sometimes symptoms of serious problems can be similar enough to normal behavior that parents might not recognize the difference. Agitation, temper tantrums, fussy eating, sadness, or restless sleep patterns are not unusual behaviors in children. When coupled with actions such as withdrawing from affection and friends, purposely hurting themselves, extreme sadness that interferes with normal activities, defiance of authority, severe disruptive behaviors in school, truancy, drug use, or violent behaviors, these symptoms can indicate severe problems.
