Comparison of behavioral disorder of children across area in Haryana state

Sunita, Dr. Sheela Sangwan and Diksha
Children are the valued possession of parents and future nation makers. A healthy child contributes to a healthy and successful society. Since birth, a baby passes through phases of physical, mental and social development until he attains adulthood. These aspects of growth and development are equally significant for the whole health of kid. Behavior problems of the child don't disappear spontaneously, they become more steadily fixed as time progresses. As long as they exist, they constitute infants to adults and affect their attitudes toward the child and that they can move to punishment and isolation by society. As an adult, a personal must function usefully as a member of his own culture, respect the rights of others, and behave in order that he merits the trust of those who depend on him. A toddler whose behavior problems are ignored cannot attain this maturity. He will continue in attitudes and actions which always have caused him complexity and which are even more inappropriate in adulthood than in childhood (Mowrer, 1948). The main purpose of the study was to investigate behavioral disorder of children as per their area of residence. The study was conducted in two district of Haryana state. For collection of data four schools were selected at random from both the district. From selected schools 240 respondents from the age group of 11 to 17 years were selected at random. Behavioral disorder of children was assessed by using Strengths and Difficulties Questionnaire (SDQ) developed by Goodman (2002) [3]. The collected data was classified and tabulated as per the objectives. For analysis of data frequency, percentages, mean, standard deviation and independent sample ‘z’ test were used. Results indicated that in urban as well as in rural area majority of the children had normal level of behavioural disorder and urban children were more prevalent by behavioral disorder than rural children.
