Children are affected by every part of their life and this plays a role in the way they develop their behavior as adolescents. This may range from their parents, the environment and society they grow up in and the peers they associate with on a daily basis.

When children are neglected, behavioral problems may occur. This may lead to them seeking attention by doing things they are not supposed to do. It will also obligate them to learn how to behave in society from other sources, like television.
