General term

How common is it for somebody to get behavioral problem?

Very

Stress
Since 'behavior' defines all that we do, any problem related to our actions can be considered a 'behavioral problem.' The term is generally used to refer to repeated behaviors, even when the negative consequences make it clear that the behavior causes anger or stress in others, or reduces the freedom of the patient. It depends on who sets the rules - a strict parent may see more 'problems!'

What is the definition or description of: Behavioral problem?

Wide range problems

Behavior encompasses a lot of what we do, and problems can be large or small - so it is a pretty loose term. It often refers to externailzing behaviors which tend to disrespect or disrupt the rights or activities of others. Aggression, stealing, defiance, are some more obvious examples.

A problem?

Mental_health
All can be a mental health issue when the stuttering affects self-esteem, communication, and relationships with others. Stuttering can be treated, and a diagnosis needs to be made since the symptoms are multi-determined.
