In brief: Depends

It depends on the childs age, severety of the problem, and what you mean by keeping under control.
You could start by getting a proper evaluation and deciding what thera[y if any is needed, behavior modification and parenting skills training could also prove very helpful.Every case is different, but waiting usually only leads to worse behavior.
