I am so thrilled to find this group. I had written a long post but it was deleted before I was able to finish it. Ugh! Just the basics about me for this first one. I have a 10 year old daughter with ADHD and ODD. The reason that I went searching for a support group was because my daughter and I had a very rough week and I was at my wit's end. It has been comforting to read everyone's stories. I really have felt like I have been all alone in this struggle since when I speak to other parents of children who do not have ADHD ODD, they look at me like I am an alien or worse, a bad parent. I think that I just need an outlet to calm down when my daughter has been screaming at me all day or making me feel like the worst mother that ever was. Ugh!
Hi, Just joined the group, we have a 6 year old, soon to be 7, he is very intelligent but extremely disruptive at school and at home. He has been diagnosed with ODD already and we are working on trying to seek treatment and possibly a ADHD diagnosis. He does not pay attention in school, Does not respect authority at all. He can also be the sweetest little boy youll ever meet all at the same time....
Hello, I am new here and new to the diagnosis of my son (Chase) who is five years old and recently (Jan 2018) diagnosed with ODD. It's been a struggle parenting him in the last couple months but we are trying our best. Any helpful tips would be greatly appreciated.
