Teen Behavior Disorders
Life would be much easier if we could treat people of all ages the same and if they had the same symptoms for each illness or disorder. As with most medical issues, teen behavior disorders are different than child behavior disorders or adult behavior disorders. It is important to know what these disorders are and what to do if you suspect that your teen has one.
Cutting � Cutting is self injury with any object that causes bleeding to occur. Statistically more girls cut than boys but that does not mean that boys are immune. While this is often thought of as a teen behavior disorder, some even continue to do this in adulthood.
Cuts can be anywhere on the body and can be hidden by an individual wearing long sleeve items (even if it is not seasonal), always wearing long pants, any behavior meant to hide their bodies in an unusual way is suspicious. Individuals often make excuses for the marks if someone asks. The individuals friends may notice how secretive the person becomes or that they seem to lack the ability to express what is bothering them.
Self injury is not just about cutting, some individuals use matches, cigarettes or other items to burn themselves as well.
If you are worried about cutting and self injury type teen behavior disorders please seek help.
Shoplifting � There are two kinds of shoplifters, those who do it “professionally” and those who do it as “amateurs”. Some people believe that people who shoplift are kleptomaniacs but in truth, very few people have this actual behavior disorder. People can shoplift for a variety of reasons. At times, even people who have enough money to pay for their items will choose to shoplift instead of pay.
Teens can shoplift for a variety of reasons. These include but are not limited to peer pressure, to be cool, to get an adrenaline rush, to have what other kids have so that they feel equal, typically it is not an actual teen behavior disorder that prompts their actions.
