Defiant behavior is a behavior that is not accepted by society. It ranges from society to society and has no boundary for the rich or the poor. Some of these behavior patterns include extreme alcoholism, smoking, substance abuse, pilfering, rape, robbery, burglary, murder, prostitution, fighting and fraud. These behaviors may be caused by lack of parental control, freedom to children or wards without control, limits of wards without freedom, lack of good comments from parents, peer pressure, tendency of trying a scene in a movie, among others.

It is a worry to all and sundry and there are unending efforts to find solutions to curb this menace.
