Every action you take or word you utter in front of a child can change their behaviour in a way that can shape their thoughts, feelings and emotions in the future. So, it is crucial for you to understand what impact you are having, and to spot signs of psychological disabilities and disorders so you can better understand how a child is behaving and how to manage it.
