Behavior problems is a term to be compared with behavior disorders. Behaviour problems are behaviors considered within social norms which do not seriously interfere with the general functioning of the person but which nonetheless are unwanted by them or those around them. An example would be childhood tantrums.
The cultural context of behavior is important here as behavior that might be normal in one culture may be regarded as problem behavior in another and a behavior disorder in another. Certain sexual behaviours for example are viewed differently in different parts of the world.
