Our 12 yr old grandson has just moved in with us and he's been diagnosed as Bipolar and also with Oppositionl Defiance Disorder. He's quite argumentative and absolutely wears me out just trying to have a conversation with him and get him to make a good choice for himself. Does anyone have any suggestions on the most successful ways to deal with a bipolar child? He's on medications that scare the life out of me. He's an extremely intelligent child and We're trying to alter his diet some and see how that works out..but I need someone with real life experience..and hopefully successful treatments to help guide me through this process in his best interest...and ours.Answer Question
