Oppositional Defiant Disorder

Oppositional Defiant Disorder

noun

Even the most well behaved children can be challenging and difficult at times. But if your child or teen has a consistent and prolonged pattern of irritability, anger, arguing, defiance or vindictiveness towards you and other authoritarian figures, they very well might have oppositional defiant disorder (ODD).As a parent, you don’t have to manage your child with ODD alone; there are doctors, counselors and child development experts that can help.Treatment of ODD involves therapy, skills to manage behaviors, many training courses to help build positive reinforcement with family interactions/relationships, and possibly medications to help treat related mental health conditions.
