Reasons for Kids Turning Anti-Social:- Young children who are exhibited to less fear and desire will lead to anti-social behaviour later. Their desire for social connection called arbitrary imitation make them so. A link between anti-social or aggressive behaviour and CU traits is generated due to the lack of empathy, guilt and reduced sensitivity to the emotions of others. This is as per the study published in the Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry.
This translates the child into a non-caring person and he tends not to change his behaviour. They also look more aggressive to get what they want and they are not much bothered about the consequences. A research has been conducted from the Boston University Twin Project. Several children aged between 3 and 5 are researched during their lab visits. Harsh parenting are the major reasons for these behaviours among most of the children said, researchers. In both cases, researchers watched and coded which behaviours the children repeated and which they ignored.
