Read from the Book

The family unit environment should be the first of many assessments, if a child exhibits chronic behavioral symptoms. Before a loved one's psychological behavioral condition reaches the crisis state involving hospitalization, parents, educators, and physicians should realize the importance of the family unit and how it relates to childhood behavioral development. Many risk factors effect behavioral development, however the family unit environment functions as a primary source of stability for child behavior.The family unit is unique. The diversity in family units across America may offer insight into the behavioral challenges many children face during their developmental growth. These challenges have escalated during the past fifteen years. Parents are faced with more adversity and stress in today's America. Economic decline of the average American family is pervasive. Dual-parent income is now mandatory to keep family units financially solvent. Parents' time spent with their children on a daily basis is on a significant decline. Negative peer pressure affecting the family unit is pervasive.
