Most people think that when their child is continually oppositional and defiant that there is something going on with their parenting skills that is making the child behave this way.

myth.

Some people say to me, if you would just spank your child she wouldn't act this way.

Lemme tell ya. If it was that simple, we wouldn't be here today with this problem.

Oppositional Defiant Disorder is a mental disorder that is in the wiring of the brain. These kids are born this way, as many a parent of ODD kids will tell you. They know something is wrong very early in their lives, but can't figure out why or what is causing it.

These kids cannot tolerate anything that closely resembles any authority, limits, or control over them. Parenting these kids requires ditching all traditional parenting styles, and new strategies that involve eliminating power struggles and careful boundary setting.

It's not easy.

These kids are oppositionally defiant in their personality. There is no parent in the world that can change another's personality.

Any parent, who is today feeling the emotional exhaustion, frustration, and low self-esteem from dealing with a child with Oppositional Defiant Disorder and/or ADHA, just remember you are not alone.

There is a solution. And it works. I know, because I am a parent of a very gifted O.D.D. child.



This is an example of a parent with ODD child. It is very distressing:

Oppositional defiant disorder

Last reviewed: January 30, 2010.

Oppositional defiant disorder is a pattern of disobedient, hostile, and defiant behavior toward authority figures.
Causes, incidence, and risk factors

This disorder is more common in boys than in girls. Some studies have shown that it affects 20% of school-age children. However, most experts believe this figure is high due to changing definitions of normal childhood behavior, and possible racial, cultural, and gender biases.

This behavior typically starts by age 8, but it may start as early as the preschool years. This disorder is thought to be caused by a combination of biological, psychological, and social factors.
Symptoms

Actively does not follow adults' requests

Angry and resentful of others

Argues with adults

Blames others for own mistakes

Has few or no friends or has lost friends

Is in constant trouble in school

Loses temper

Spiteful or seeks revenge

Touchy or easily annoyed

To fit this diagnosis, the pattern must last for at least 6 months and must be more than normal childhood misbehavior.

The pattern of behaviors must be different from those of other children around the same age and developmental level. The behavior must lead to significant problems in school or social activities.
Signs and tests

Children with symptoms of this disorder should be evaluated by a psychiatrist or psychologist. In children and adolescents, the following conditions can cause similar behavior problems and should be considered as possibilities:

Anxiety disorders

Attention-deficit /hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)

Bipolar disorder

Depression

Learning disorders

Substance abuse disorders

Treatment

The best treatment for the child is to talk with a mental health professional in individual and possibly family therapy. The parents should also learn how to manage the child's behavior.

Medications may also be helpful, especially if the behaviors occur as part of another condition (such as depression, childhood psychosis, or ADHD).

Hi Salt.
I have an adult friend who has Asperger's. We've always believed there was something else in addition to that because he has many other behavioral problems apart from just Asperger's we haven't found answers for and this is the first time I've heard of O.D.D. but it fits to a T. Thanks. I'm going to look into this more

Sounds like the little shit just needs more spanking. "Oppositional Defiant Disorder" my ass. Is that what they are calling brats these days? I blame helicopter parenting and the classification of proper discipline as "child abuse".

What a crock of bull shit.

if spanking was the solution, we wouldn't be here today.

spanking doesn't work with these kids. they actually prefer to have the spank over relinquishing control.

Listen Parents!

You are not a bad mother, or a bad father. Your child's behavior is not a reflection of your inadequate parenting skills.

I am not a bad mother. I am a parent of a child with a mental illness.

I deal with more challenges as a parent in a day than most parents deal with in a month or a year.

i used to think like you.

i used to take all the blame.

i used to think that if only i could gain control and do something different, my child would stop melting down 7 times a day.

i used to think that putting a label on kids was wrong.

i used to think that diagnosis were thrown out too often.

i used to think that if i could only spank more and punish more that she would finally come around.


until you are at your wits end, you will open your mind to other possibilities.

ODD/ADHD is real.
it is a metabolic and brain chemistry condition.

there is a solution.

unless you are a parent of a child with mental illness, you simply will not understand.
