ODD isn't fake

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

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 think my son has it, and I'm one that thinks all of these disorders are way over diagnosed. We recently lost our insurance though, so I have no idea how to deal with anything right now.

you can't diagnosed your child with it, specialist has to do it and they won't do it simply because a parent want it. I didn't even know what it was until the doctor told me that ds had it and  I said what the hell is ODD.

It may be real. But lots of parents like to diagnose their children with it.

You are so clueless.  I am glad you get to reside in the fantasy world you live in, because you couldn't handle an ODD child.

Quoting Anonymous:

Lack of discipline

My child WILL behave! That outrageous behavior is not acceptable. 

You don't have to agree with me, go ahead and suffer through this as you chose too, by getting this "dx" you are not helping your child in any way what so ever. It only lets you "off the hook".

No, he is adopted.

Quoting mamaBerg85:

Is he ur bio son?


Quoting Wicked.Jester:

Oppositional Defiant Disorder.

Very real.

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

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

Either your kids were adopted from bad families or they live in an abusive household.

I know it's real...

They diagnosed me with it when I was about 12...

What people never think about is that we grow up lol.

Oppositional Defiant Disorder.

In other words, even with appropriate discipline the child is impossible to control, won't listen, won't behave himself.

Some believe it is the start of Anti-social Personality Disorder - a problem with adults who have many of the same issues - defiant to authority, get into fights, have dramatic relationships, criminality etc.

What is it?

My ds has adhd as well and we are considering bipolar as well but with his age they can't say for sure about the bipolar because the signs are so close to ODD signs.

Quoting echoedsentiment:

My ds has ODD and Resiliance ADHD. More is being looked into for a deeper assessment but it took the docs almost 2 years to truly diagnose my son with this. It's not an easy one to diagnose and definitly not easy to deal with.

It isn't fake but it isn't nearly as common as people would like to believe. I work with special needs kids. Out of the several kids with ODD diagnoses, only one didn't respond to rigid structure. It is mostly a parenting fail, but when it does exist, it is NASTY.

So sad... I'm so glad he has you to give him the love and care he needs. Bless you. Has he shown improvement since being with you? How old is he now?


Quoting Wicked.Jester:

Yes he was adopted at 4 years old.  Its not the country thats the problem, ita growing up in an institution for so long.

Quoting Snakecharm:

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