I am seeking other parents who have children with O.D.D for support.
My son, 10, was diagnosed with ADHD and ODD about 4 years ago. I am really struggleing with the ODD as he is getting older and could use some pointers from anyone going through the same thing. I am in Brisbane QLD. We see a psychologist and a Psychiatrist.
his behavour is appauling and I can't seem to get a grip on it. We have melt downs over just about anything (unless of course it's something HE wants to do). His melt downs are causing damages to the house (holes in walls and we have had a broken window etc) and it's costing me a fortune in repairs! I am trying my hardest to :Chose my battles" however it's not always so easy.
His behavour is causing problems with his schooling, he is currently on short days and attending his 3rd behavour program (one day per week)
Has anyone ever overcome the dreaded ODD??
I'm drained, exhausted and lost at this point in time. I really need something to start working for me. I also have 2 younger children to care for.
