How many behavior problems are there?

2 main types

Specialists consider that there are two main types of disruptive behavior disorders – Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD) and Conduct Disorder (CD). What is to know about Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD)?  It is a type of behavior problem in which children are openly hostile, uncooperative, and irritable.  Keep in mind that kids lose their tempers and are mean and spiteful towards others.  On the other hand, Conduct Disorder (CD) is sometimes a later, more serious, phase of Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD).  It is important to understand that a child with CD is not just a child being “bad”.  In fact, the child has a serious psychiatric disorder that requires professional help.
