Arrow Gyrus Daily Questions; Pediatrics #14

The parents of a 6-year-old boy bring him to his pediatrician to discuss his behavior patterns. The child’s mother is concerned about his behaviors, but his father reports that his son will “grow out of it.” Some behavior patterns are considered appropriate at certain developmental stages, but are obviously pathologic if present later on in life. Other behavior patterns are considered pathologic at all ages. Which of the following is an example of the latter?

(A) temper tantrums
(B) lying
(C) oppositional behavior
(D) truancy
(E) rebellion

Answer is D

In children less than 6 years of age, oppositional behavior, rebellion, and lying are common as children are just learning to follow societal rules.

Temper tantrums may persist from preschoolers up until 5 years of age, usually without pathologic origin.

Truancy, or intentional school avoidance, is pathologic at any age.



Truancy is a sign of depression
