Has anyone dealt with this? My daughter is almost 9 and is out of control. She is on my last nerve and is disrupting the harmony of our entire family. At first I just thought she was a brat but someone said it sounded like ODD and she fits pretty much every criteria. The only thing she doesn't fit is she isn't defiant with her teachers and friends (that I've seen) other then some small stuff like refusing to do extra credit and not caring if she doesn't do her homework.
She lies, steals, does anything to make me mad, cries about everything, throws tantrums worse then a 2yo. She hits her brother and sisters, refuses to do anything we ask her (like chores) and blames us when she gets in trouble. She also suffers with major social anxiety to the point she refused to go to a bday party for some really good friends because she was terrified. Everyone in the house is on edge all the time and she ruins ever family function.

Kristin had really great advice. My nephew has this, along with other conditions. With a lot of therapy, and the right meds, he is doing great now at 15 years old. My sister also got help from a phyciatrist to teach her how to handle the discipline and day to day challenges in a way that would benefit both of them.
