Prevention & Expectations

What can be done to prevent the condition?

A nurturing home environment is the best prevention for conduct disorders in adolescents. Children from homes with a good balance of love and discipline are less likely to develop this disorder than are those from abusive, permissive, or neglectful homes.

What are the long-term effects of the condition?

Children with this disorder are at risk for developing a personality disorder. Serious problems in school and with the law often develop as well.
