  • Nope. My DH is ADHD / ODD... But my kids are not. My oldest does have an anxiety issue, but we are dealing with it and he's getting better.

  • I am sure you are not the only one. My 6 yo has ODD.

  • Nope...Mine have NOT been diagnosed with that. However, my 10 year old has been diagnosed with 'Distruptive Behavior Disorder'..haha..I think ALL kids have that..especially when mom gets on the phone!!

  • I is odd that now more kids are getting sick? is it the food we eat or the water we drink? Is it the shots they force us to give them?

    Before it was just kids that where brats and parents could not control them, but now it is different.

  • I think sometimes these days those disorders are over diagnosed. My daughter doesn't have anything like that, but she's young. I would seriously doubt it if someone tried to tell me she does.

  • nope my daughter don't have any of those, the only problem that she has is a problem with her bowels! and she is on meds for that and she should outgrow it!

  • Thank goodness mothers have a place to go who have children with these health issues. I cant even imagine how our mothers got through it when there was medication only and not education as well!

  • Unless lazy, sarcastic and smart ass is a symptom of those things, I believe I fall in the category of "you are not alone!"

  • I'm sure I'll get heat for this, but I think it's that parents need an excuse as to why their kid is a brat instead of it just being bad parenting.
