Youngsters who exhibit anti-social behaviour have great difficulty with stability in their behaviour, feeling and thinking. This means that they can often react impulsively, irritably or aggressively. They find it difficult to take social norms into account, are indifferent and do not take responsibility. This can be the result of the urge to get a drug they are addicted to or a traumatic event from the past that the young person has not been able to cope with.
What causes anti-social behaviour?
Families greatly impact the causation of anti-social behaviour. A parent history of anti-social behaviours, parental alcohol and drug abuse, unstable home life, absence of good parenting, physical abuse, parental instability (mental health issues/PTSD) and economic distress within the family are known to be causes of anti-social behaviour. But also a teenager's or adolescent's peers can impact or enhance their anti-social behaviour. Especially when anti-social behaviours are present within their peer group, the chance of developing anti-social behaviour grows.
