Mexico has been doing important research in neurodevelopment, nutrition and parenting. So, we have put interest in not only diagnosing behavioral disturbances, but also in investigating the environments and the influence of caregivers on the behavior of children. An observational, descriptive and transversal study was made in patients who attended a neuropediatric consultation due to a conductual problem. We performed an exhaustive anamnesis, applied a DSM IV / 5 based questionnaire on symptoms and asked if there was a parenting structure at home. Is there any reason to believe that we are over diagnosing behavioral problems and underestimating comorbidities or child rearing problems? The results showed that almost half of the included patients did not meet criteria for a neurobiological or neurodevelopmental disorder, therefore it is the group of patients who are at risk of being over diagnosed and probably the behavioral problem is influenced by an unfavorable environment or lack of positive stimuli.
