Antisocial behavior and aggression has been shown to link back to the rejection of those around you as a young child. It is believed that peer rejection at a young age is the cause of later stress while also affecting the development in that child. “It is hypothesized that, as a provocation stimulus, peer social rejection will lead children to respond with increased reactive and proactive aggressive behavior,” (Dodge & Coie, 2987). This quote narrows the article down to one main subject; that subject being the aggression caused in a child caused by rejection from peers or others around them. Not only does social rejection cause stress and aggression in a young child, it results in stress among the family due to the child’s behavioral changes.
Schizophrenia is a brain disorder that effects the way a person acts, thinks, and sees the world. People with schizophrenia have a different way of looking at life. People with schizophrenia are out of touch with what is really going on in reality. Sometimes they will hear voices that are not really there, or they may talk funny and weird. A lot of the time they feel that someone is after them or that the world is against them in some way or form; they feel that people are at odds with them and they have enemies and have to watch their backs sort of speak.
Drastic changes in behaviour may occur, and the person can become upset, anxious, confused, angry or suspicious of those around them. They may not think they need help, and it can be hard to persuade them to visit a doctor.

There are many symptoms falling into schizophrenia including hallucinations, delusions, thought disorders, movement disorders, and cognitive symptoms. “Voices” are the most common type of hallucinations and many people with this disorder hear many voices in their heads. Other hallucinations may include seeing people or objects that are not actually present and feeling things touching their bodies. Delusions, another symptoms of schizophrenia, are false beliefs are not part of their culture and do not change.

The next reason why juveniles commit delinquent acts is child abuse. If a child is constantly being abused it is highly likely that they will turn violent to protect themselves. Once they turn violent they are most likely to commit delinquent acts. The next reason is drug abuse if they are hooked on drugs they will commit delinquent acts so that they support their habit.

Melroy writes that in early childhood development, there is a split in the infant psychopath. There are two sides to that and one is the “soft me”, which is vulnerable inside and the “hard not-me” which is intrusive, punishing outside (neglectful or painful experiences). Once that infant experiences an outside pain he starts turning inward, kind of a way to protect himself from being hurt. The develop what’s called a character armor, that allows them to distrust everything outside, and refusing to allow anything in.

Diagnosing Bipolar or ADHD seems to be getting awfully similar. Both disorders share many characteristics; impulsivity, inattention, hyperactivity, physical energy, behavioral and emotional liability. Which makes me believe one disorder is the root of the other, or they are the same disorder. They have substantial co- morbidity, as well in one study in pre pubertal kids, of those who clearly had bipolar disorder, 90% also had ADHD. “So clearly, at least in very young children, one will have to be looking for bipolar disorder underneath ADHD symptoms.” (Barbara Geller 2005).
