"ODD is just an excuse for violence"

Just saw this in a post. You ladies do know ODD is a mental illness just like bipolar and all that. Is those cases people need therapy and meds to get better and learn to control themselves. Mental illness is real. I guess you believe it when you actually have a child or close relative with an actual mental illness. A mental illness is not an "excuse" its an actual illness. Wake up. Not everybody has that perfect health. That is all.

Yes mental illness is real but that doesn't mean ODD is real.

My 5yo has ODD. I can even admit that I have actually been afraid of her. Something in her just changes, she goes from my sweet monkey girl to this angry, violent, almost possessed ball of destruction.

It's pretty easy to see the difference in brain scans of a child with ODD and an atypical child. Different areas process things differently.

Quoting thefiregoddess:

Yes mental illness is real but that doesn't mean ODD is real.

I have you to know it is real and only a person that has never been around or lived with a person that has it could say it not. My son has it and it is a daily struggle for him and us .now that being said he is getting help and he is doing great he is married with kids .

Yes but when you hit your spouse and a child witnesses violence, I say you have a serious problem and should be removed from the family unit until you can keep your hands to yourself.

Then those kids should be removed from the general public until they are able to function in society.

Many people do not understand mental disorders. My brother and I both have ADHD and I have had teachers try to tell me that it doesn't exist and we're just making excuses for our behavior. Unless you expeirence it for yourself, you just won't understand it.

OMG. Doesn't everyone have this at one point or another. I mean come on. No one wants to be told what to do. Everyone rebels at one point or another.
Just another excuse to let kids act fucking crazy. Not ok.
