The environment in which children live can either help or hurt healthy development, just as a child’s behavior may have both negative and positive influence upon other family members. Certain elements, too, within a child’s family may increase his or her risk for developing emotional or behavioral problems. (Physical abuse, child neglect, sexual abuse, and emotional maltreatment have all been associated with troubling behaviors in children.)
These students tend to underachieve in school. Learning problems put them at a disadvantage in any school environment, particularly since many of these students have not developed adequate social skills by the time they enter school, and poor social skills may result in social rejection by both peers and teachers. This rejection leads to further disinterest in school and even greater underachievement and failure.
Children are often exposed to stressors within their communities. Exposure to crime and gang violence has often been linked to a tendency to behave in ways associated with emotional and behavioral problems.
