Introduction: Modern society labels people who have difficulties adapting and adhering to the limitations of everyday situations, according to the socially acceptable behavior as people with emotional and behavioural disorders. These usually start either in childhood or in adolescence and can affect the person later in their life as well. Early diagnosis and appropriate treatment of such conditions play a very important role. Purpose: We wanted to determine the quality of life of children with emotional and behavioural disorders from the parents’ perspective. In this, we wanted to focus on the role of nurses in the treatment of children on the primary level of healthcare. Methods: We used the empirical method of research. The Questionnaire Strength an Difficulties SDQ was used. and we sent it to the parents of children who attended the “Mavrični Bojevniki” camp in summer 2017 and was completed by 63 parents. Results: We have classified children's problems with 5 scales: emotional problems scale, conduct problems scale, hyperactivity scale, peer problems scale and prosocial scale. The results showed that children in all 5 areas have slightly raised or high values, except prosocial scale. The total sum of the average is 17.04, which tells us that this is a high risk of developing a behavioral or emotional disorder. Discussion and conclusion: Children's patterns of behaviour are influenced by parents, the surroundings, school, friends, material goods and the media. If we want to help children to a more quality life, we need to be familiar with the surroundings in which they live and grow up. Certain behavioural disorders in children, such as hyperactivity, disobedience, inability to follow the rules or control themselves, hypersensitivity and inability to resolve conflicts independently, can further have an effect on the child’s disorder. Family plays a key role in children’s acquisition of behavioural patterns for life and in teaching them social norms and societal skills. Nurses also play an important role in helping parents and children with the development and with improving their quality of life. Nurses are the ones who can, besides parents, monitor and support their progress. It is necessary to support the training of professional healthcare workers in their jobs for the health protection of children on the primary healthcare level. By strengthening their competences, they can use them to successfully recognize, help and prevent adolescent maladjustment and their disorders.
