“Whoever touches the life of the child touches the most sensitive point of a whole, which has roots in the most distant past and climb towards the infinite future.” The quote by Maria Montessori tells us how important childhood is in the life of an individual. It also implies that children are not miniature adults but are ultimate products of a complex interaction between genetic potential, biological capacities and the nurturing environment. It is no exaggeration that child with problem behaviours needs to be understood in the context of his developmental strengths (competencies) the family, the society and the culture (background) he belongs to. Similarly the problem behaviours can be helped through approaching the areas of need, strengthening his competencies to adjust and adapt to the environment which includes family and society.
