I have a 12 year old stepson who I am convinced has ODD, but my husband has never let him stay in therapy long enough to get any help for us. He is just afraid of putting him on medication. We had him on ADHD medication before and it did nothing, and that convinced my husband that meds were wrong for him. When I am convinced they were just the wrong kind. Anyway, the therapist told me and his mom (my husband refused to go to the meetings)when he was 8 years old that he was a sociopath and that "those kind of kids" grow up to either be a serial killer or a con artist. Nice choices. Anyway, this situation has gotten out of control now, especially since he is bigger and cannot be picked up and moved or subdued if he goes on one of his tangents. He has hit me and kicked me many times and no kind of discipline even has an effect on him. He just doesn't care. I am really at the end of my rope. I need help or I need to get out of here, one or the other......
