My son was diagnosed when he was 5. I've dealt with his behavior, and he has been tolerable for years. In the last six months his behavior has really gone down hill. He's 18, and thinks he can do whatever he wants. He's only interested in a few things(1) staying out as much as possible(2)drinking(3)sleeping all day. I think I am going to kick him out, but I get scared because he doesn't have the tools to make it out there. He has a myriad of disreputable friends, who are probably ODD as well( birds of a feather flock together)and he will probably stay with them, or hop around from, in my opinion, loser to loser.His belligerence is OUT OF CONTROL! Do I still keep him home, which is sort of enabling him, or do I throw him out and let him hit bottom, which is scary because he's so impulsive he could end up dead or in prison. does anyone have any experience with ODD+ADHD at this age?
