HI there. My son is 11 years old and was diagnosed as ADHD and ODD at the age of 4 while in foster care. I got him back and he has been on meds (just about every thing out there) and seen therapists. He has been institutionalized 6 times. His longest stay was 6 months at the age of 5. Nothing is working. He is angry, disrespectful, whiny, aggressive, defiant, etc, etc. Just a few months ago he was institutionalized for auditory hallucinations. He saw a demon. They thought he was possessed by the devil. Yes I am not kidding. They were going to do an exorcism but sent him home 2 days later saying he was fine and that he really wasnt ADHD but BI polar. I dont know what he is but he is a handful. He has been on all kinds of medicine, at one time he was taking 7 pills a day. Now he is on Geodon and it is not helping either. We go back to the doctor this week thank god. I am here because I cannot discipline him. Nothing works, spanking led to him ratting on us at school because he brusies easily. Time outs are a joke. Taking away privleges only worked till he stopped caring. He is over 100 pounds and has 2 younger siblings who are starting to want to behave that way too. In the past when he was younger and I was a single mom, I gave into him because it was easier than fighting with him. Now I guess I am paying for that.
