All kids misbehave some times,which is perfectly normal. But child behavior disorders go beyond mischief and rebellion. If you think there might be a problem, ask for help. Kids who have problems behaving are at higher risk for school failure, mental health problems and even suicide. It becomes critically important to support and guide the child in a positive, healthy direction.
A young person is said to have a child behavior disorders when he or she demonstrates behavior that is noticeably different from that expected in the school or community. Research has identified both biological and environmental causes for these Disorders. Some children have extremely difficult and challenging behaviours that are outside the norm for their age.
Now, more than ever before, there is hope for young people with child behavior disorders. Researchers are working to gain new scientific insights that will lead to better treatments and cures for mental, emotional disorders. In the mean time their are parenting techniques that can help lessen some of the pressures you may be experiencing.
Research has identified both biological and environmental causes for disruptive child behavior disorders Children that are at risk for Oppositional Defiant and Conduct Disorders are those who have low birth weight, neurological damage or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. These disorders share some common symptoms, so diagnosis can be difficult and time consuming but extremely important if your going to receive the proper treatment.
Examples of the Oppositional Defiant child behavior Disorder are, defiance of any authority, Arguing and refusing to obey rules, Failure to take responsibility for bad behavior or mistakes, Resentment, and temper tantrums. Sometimes Oppositional Defiant Disorder leads to Conduct Disorder. Often it is very difficult to deal with these children. Around one in ten children under the age of 12 years are thought to have oppositional defiant disorder, with boys out numbering girls by two to one.

What do you think of my article on Asperger s Syndrome?Asperger s Syndrome, Part 6

Child Development and Asperger s Syndrome
Cognitive and social skills, which shape personality and character, develop throughout life. However, genetic or environmental obstacles can obstruct development, especially early in life. One such obstacle is Aspergers Syndrome.
Asperger s Syndrome (or AS) is a congenital neurobiological condition that affects 0.25% of the population. AS is linked to autism spectrum disorder, and includes autistic-like behavior and marked deficiencies in social and communication skills. AS individuals are of average to above average intelligence, some with unusual gifts and creativity. As a diagnosis, it has been known in Europe since the 1940 s, but has only been included in our medical diagnostic manuals since 1994. Thus many adults and children remain undiagnosed. Consequently AS is relatively unknown and not clearly understood, even among professionals.
AS is indeed a puzzle, and researchers are working to identify the pieces and form them into a meaningful picture. My experiences as an adult recently diagnosed with Asperger s, together with my studies in child development, suggest that individuals with AS are like young children--stuck in time, so to speak, never able to advance beyond early stages in social, cognitive and language development.
For example, most AS difficulties center around social competencies. A salient characteristic of young children is egocentrism--the inability to recognize that other people think and feel differently than oneself. Persons with Asperger s Syndrome remain in this egocentric state, unable to interpret the thoughts and emotions of others, or to experience empathy. Another name given to this condition is "mind blindness"--the incapacity to visualize the mind states of others. Thus it is hard for AS individuals to develop normal friendships, as either children or adults. Without empathy, they become emotionally stunted. A related problem is the inability to carry out social referencing through understanding nonverbal cues, such as facial expressions or body language. Such cues are "invisible" to those with AS.
A piece of the AS puzzle related to cognitive skills is attentiveness. "Attention span" is the number of mental elements that one can remember at any given time. During preschool years children exhibit "centration," focusing on one piece of information at a time, and briefly at that. The ability to process several elements simultaneously, or to remain focused on a task, comes with greater cognitive sophistication. Unfortunately, the tendency towards centration seems to remain with the AS individual into adulthood. One diagnosis commonly given prior to accurate diagnosis with Asperger s Syndrome is "attention deficit disorder."
A third part of the Asperger s puzzle relates to language. An early stage of language development includes "telegraphic speech"-- abbreviated speech in which words not essential to the meaning of a sentence are omitted. People with AS seem not to develop beyond this stage, further stunting their communication skills. The easy flow of spontaneous social conversation is usually beyond their capacities. They must learn social "scripts" through special training and repetition. Even then, AS speech tends to be stilted and formal. Also, children in early stages of language development are quite literal. Figurative use of language, symbolic representation, nuances and double meanings are a later development. Once again, the individual with Asperger s remains in a childhood realm--that of literalism. Linguistic sophistications such as jokes, puns and idioms are hard for AS individuals to grasp. Even the most basic of social interactions become a confusing and humiliating experience.
Understandably, AS individuals encounter enormous difficulties during the transition into adolescence, and later into adult life, since they have not completed the requisite developmental tasks or moved beyond early stages in language, cognitive and social skills. They frequently remain emotionally dependent upon parents or family members, and suffer from separation anxiety and insecurity when trying to live on their own. Friendships with peers, romantic relationships, marriage and parenting, and entry into the work world are usually beyond their capacity. They remain, in many debilitating ways, stuck in time, trapped in the AS puzzle. They are, in essence, childlike beings attempting to live in an adult world, but without the support and understanding that children are afforded.

Some of it is interesting and it explains some things that are usually mentioned, but not explained much in other articles. The article only covers a small part of AS though. Since you went into such detail about this part of AS, I think you should at least mention that there is much more to AS than this, because people who don t know much about it could think this is it and that there are no other symptoms or problems in AS.
I m also not sure about the comparison with children. Aspies do have some childlike traits, but you make it sound like we need to be treated like children, which is definitely not what we need. Adult aspies should be treated as adults, but with acceptance and support when needed. I think the article needs to be a bit more clear on this.
Other than that, well done.

Borderline Personality Disorder
A personality disorder is characterized by an enduring pattern of inner experience and outward behavior that consistently deviates from the expectations of the individual s culture (Linehan, Oldham, & Silk, 1995). Everyone knows about Depression, Schizophrenia, Bipolar, and Anxiety disorder, but does anyone know what Borderline Personality Disorder is about? Almost 10 million Americans or more may be affected by BPD. Out of the 10 million 75% are women (Kreisman 2). Borderline Personality Disorder is a draining condition for sufferers, but exposing to BPD, and making people aware that there are opportunities for prevention and treatment are becoming available. Though the disorder was first defined in the 1930 s, it was only in the 1970 s that people began seeking therapy for the disorder. In the 1980 s BPD was included in the American Psychiatric Association Diagnostic manual, third edition, called the DSM-III, the diagnostic bible of the psychiatric profession.
Borderline personality disorder is a very serious and confusing disorder. People with BPD have a hard time living a normal healthy and stable life in or out of relationships. They are never satisfied with their, life no matter where or with whom they are. Their relationships often start with passionate love and end with intense hate. They love without measure those whom they will hate without reason (Thomas Sydenham 18th). Often in the beginning of a relationship they admire, adore, glorify or even worship the person. They love to spend time with their significant other. As time goes on, they spend less and less time in their affair because they feel abandoned when their partners arent there for them, as much as they want. If they feel or when they feel abandoned they start to make the relationship hard for others to handle. They either blame their partner or them selves. Why in the hell cant I control myself? The man has to make a living. Hes such a good guy he doesnt deserve me- no one should have to put up with me! (Reiland 23). Reiland expressed to the readers how she blamed herself constantly; on daily bases for the actions she wasnt capable or had a hard time controlling. This pattern was continues in all of her relationships.
They have so many mood swings that its hard for anyone to be consistent. They might feel lonely and depressed and then high with happiness and love. Sometimes they might even get angry at anyone near them or close to them. Their mood swings are irrational and without any external meaning. In Fatal Attraction starting Glenn Close and Michael Douglas. In the beginning of the film, Alex(BPD) was outgoing, charming, fun, sexy and adventurous. When Dan meet Alex she seems to be okay with having a fleeing even thought Dan is married. Until, Dan tried to break it off. When he tries to leave, she gets very upset, and over reacts for a woman who just seduced this married man. However, this sort of emotional instability is typical of those who have Borderline Personality Disorder.
Emotions are always unexpected and change at any given moment of night and day. A person with BPD always complains about feeling empty or in medical terms, dyshoric. I am alone; I can feel it the emptiness inside me. Theres nothing there. I have tried many things to feel that void (Holmes 349). Most of the time, Borderliner complains about feeling empty, because they cant Identify them selves clearly enough. Sometime, Jennifer would transform right before Dr. Grays eyes. She could be insightful and intelligent, working toward greater self- understanding, and then become a child, coquettish and seductive ( Kreisman 4). They do not seem to know who they are and are constantly changing, as if trying to find who they really are. They feel like there is a big hole inside of them. To find themselves, Borderliner might start doing anything that can involve irrational behavior. They might gamble, binge eat, take drugs, have unsafe sex, spend money irresponsibly, and drive recklessly. Halfway through a school day, Dixie would wind up fighting with some of the other kids. She didnt care .She was tough; she had friends and drugs, she was cool. Once, she even punched her science teacher (Kreisman 42).
You start by talking about personality disorders, and then go on to say "Everyone knows about Depression, Schizophrenia,..." which are not personality disorders (doesn t make sense).
Also, instead of quoting whole lines from somewhere, better you paraphrase it in your own words.
