ODD isn't fake

Anonymous

Why do people tend to think it doesn't exist? It isn't a fake disorder. I have been dealing with this disorder for  almost 5 years with my ds. all of my ds principals, vice principals, and teacher for the past 5 years know it is in fact a real disorder. ODD is more than a misbehaved child.  There is more to it than that.

I still question this diagnosis. I feel that there may be many other factors that produce these behaviors other than slapping on an ODD diagnosis.

They are really difficult children.  as my ds get older i find that he is getting more and more difficult.

My mom just recently found out that my 40 year old brother always had it. but back in the day it was just bad kids and that is why he grew up in reform schools and boy homes.

Oppositional Defiant Disorder.

Very real.

My son has reactive attachment disorder and some of the behaviors overlap.

I wouldn't wish a child with ODD on anyone.  Its heartbreaking.

Was your son adopted? I ask because detachment disorders are common in adopted babies from certain parts of the world.
