Often children’s problems like ADHD, oppositional define disorder, conduct disorder, and schizophrenia may have its roots in dysfunctional family systems. Family interactions that are marked by discord and disharmony can lead to behavioural problems. As a result of the conflictual environment of the family, children may be prone towards showing negative reactions. Such an environment also affects children’s obedience to parents’ instructions, concentration in studies and their ability to cope with stressful situations. Parent-child relationship may need assessment and appropriate guidance so that children’s problems can be resolved.
