Is theatre safe for people?

The risks for injury were substantial when performing children's theatre with a trained technician using safety in mind. The findings suggest that children's theatre could benefit from a more rigorous regulatory process.

Anonymous Patient Answer

Has theatre proven to be more effective than a placebo?

Theatre improves the subjective health of students with respiratory discomfort, especially when combined with exercises. This suggests that play is not just enjoyable but also of medical benefit to children's health.

What are common treatments for children behavior?

The DSM-IV categorizes children with disruptive behavior as having a diagnosable condition, therefore treatment is the treatment of choice rather than intervention for behavior. The treatment may be provided by a clinician or family member. A psychoeducational program can benefit both the child and the family. In addition, psychosocial, psychiatric, family and social considerations are important in managing children's disruptive behavior.

Anonymous Patient Answer

Can children behavior be cured?

The present study confirms a significant improvement of parent-reported children's problem-solving, impulse control and social behavior between pre-intervention and the post-intervention assessments: this can be considered an important effect of this study.

What is children behavior?

Children are generally friendly toward adults. Children are generally fearful of animals and may be afraid of bugs, snakes, or rats; a few children are afraid of cars. Children are usually curious and excited to be around adults and enjoy exploring. At times, children may become mischievous and disobedient. Children should be supervised to help prevent and treat potentially dangerous situations. Children who are afraid of the dark or quiet will benefit from the help of their parents through comforting, reassuring, and encouraging them. Children can become anxious by fear or fear of harm from others (e.g., anxiety and avoidance-related disorders). Children want to be with their parents and may even show distress over being away from their parents.

Anonymous Patient Answer

What are the signs of children behavior?

The symptoms of the pediatricians should be investigated, especially for children with severe symptoms to find the cause of behavior, and to find the best method of treatment or rehabilitation for these children; therefore, pediatricians must have relevant clinical knowledge about pediatric behavior.

Anonymous Patient Answer

What causes children behavior?

There are a number of factors that are involved in the aetiology of child psychopathology, such as biopsychosocial model and theories of cognitive development and behavior. It is important for us to understand the underlying cognitive factors from the theories to develop interventions to help children with behavior problems.

Anonymous Patient Answer

Does children behavior run in families?

There has been a debate on whether child disruptive behaviors run in families. The present study showed that siblings of children with conduct problems share common dimensions of their own disruptive behavior, which may be related to the shared environmental factors that act cross-generationally. Results from a recent clinical trial, family factors were associated with conduct problems that might affect the children's mental health in early elementary school.

Anonymous Patient Answer

What is the primary cause of children behavior?

The most important determinants of a child's aggressive behavior are familial, particularly the father's aggressive behavior, and prenatal factors and early neonatal factors such as sudden infant death and intrauterine infection. However, environmental risk factors such as poverty, unemployment, substance abuse, and behavioral problems are probably more important than genetic ones. There are only a few studies for each category of environmental risk factor, so we cannot say how important each one is. The strongest risk factor for aggressive behavior, which explains why children commit crimes, is their father's aggressive behavior.

Anonymous Patient Answer

How serious can children behavior be?

These high scores, which could be due to the children's inability to accurately report them, should alert clinicians to the possibility that the child may be in need of consultation.
