Is there others mothers that has a child with ODD?

ODD is hard to explain really.It's a disorder that causes a child not to mind.Be disrespectful and mean to others for no reason other than to be doing it.

  • My son was diagnosed ADHD/ODD. ODD usually presents itself alongside ADD or ADHD. His diagnosis was changed over the summer from ODD to bi-polar though. And no, children with ODD do not act as normal children do. The defiance is outrageous in these children. It's very hard, and most parents that have never experienced it only think that it's bad parenting or an excuse.

  • I heard of ADD but not ODD is it similar? OR just something people are telling parents their children have when they are acting how children normally do?

  • what age's does that start showing? My son is only 22 months old but hyper! he can't sit still, wouldn't even sit for 3 minutes to watch TV - barely makes it through dinner cause i think he's just too active to sit so he says he's all done, then comes wanting more after like 20 more minutes.
