Dear
Welcome to HCM
We understand your concerns

I went through your details. Conduct disorder is a group of behavioral and emotional problems that usually begins during childhood or teenage years. People with the disorder have a long-term and continual pattern of behavior that violates the rights of others or goes against what is deemed normal by society for their age group. Genetic and environmental factors may contribute to the development of conduct disorder.

If your child has conduct disorder, he or she may appear tough and confident. In reality, children who have conduct disorder are insecure and inaccurately believe that people are being aggressive or threatening toward them.

The best approach is behavioral modification therapy or talk therapy to help teach him ways to adapt to feelings. You also should learn how to parent your child under the given circumstance. If your child has other disorders such as depression or ADHD—both of which commonly occur with conduct disorder—the doctor could give medicines too. In this case, the child has psychotic issues.

I suggest, you to work with the psychiatrist for a cure because the psychiatrist knows the child's condition better..
