The article offers information about the recent guidance of the Great Britain National Institute for Clinical Excellence on conduct disorders. This new guidance is assessed to place pediatricians on the center stage because of their integral part on child mental health service. The new guidance also introduces the "Child in Mind," an educational module for specialist training, and the appointment of a new specialist consultant in child mental health. It explores the patterns of difficult and challenging behavior known as disruptive behavior disorders as well as developmental pathways of antisocial behavior. Moreover, a clinical case of a 5-year old child with conduct disorder is presented.
