Nevertheless, their adolescent behaviour may incur adverse consequences for their adult years, including, for example, a criminal record and dropping out of school. (Frick & Viding, 2009). Child versus adolescent-onset of antisocial behaviour Reflecting their different trajectories, the child-onset group is also referred to as the life-course persistent group, and the adolescent-onset group has been referred to as the adolescence-limited group (Moffitt, 2003; 2006). Of note, dispositional and contextual risk factors differ depending upon whether problem behaviours have early (childhood) or late (adolescence) onset.

Included are considerations of overt physical aggression, lack of concern for the feelings of others, sensation-seeking or risk-taking behaviours, and non-conformity or disregard for the rules of society or social institutions.
