I have a almost 7 yr old with ADHD and ODD. I have a 9 yr old daughter who has something, just haven't taken her to the mental doctor since she was 3 which they said she had ADHD. I'm taking her tot he doctor soon to see what can be done with her and her problems.
Anyways, I am here because my son is hard to handle at times. Well when his meds ware off. He also takes meds at night to help him sleep because he would stay up really late, sleep some, and then get up and be up for hours. He needs his sleep and so do I lol!
He's fine at school. He is a very smart boy.
He hits, yells, throws and much more when he don't get his way. He play fights with his sisters and is VERY hyper.
There are no meds for ODD and I have a fear that when he grows up he will have a lot of problems in life. And ODD does not go away!
welcome!! I am in the same boat. My 11 year old is ADHD and my 8 year old is ADD/ODD and they are both on meds. Austin (my 8 y/o) sounds just like your with the ODD and your right, there are no meds for that aspect. Austin has awful outburtsts and awful temper, he loses it at the snap of a finger, it's awful, somedays by 2 year old is better behaved than he is. I hate it. luckily he does ok in school when it comes to that and the school has been great working on it with us. we also have to give my oldest something to help him sleep as he has sever insomnia as well and he also eats in his sleep. it's very rough and there are days I am ready to pull my hair out!
Yep, same vote here. He does good at school and at his nana's house. At home he is different for some reason? I'm glad I know someone who is dealing with the same problems.
I've never posted on a WB about my kids because I am scared of what people might think of me when I talk about how hard it is to deal with my son. Because you know the people who do not have to deal with it do not understand it at all. They think we can just sit them in a chair and they will stop. LOL. Not with mine. I don't spank any of my kids, it does not good. And the other parents think you're trying to hurt your kids or being mean to them. I've had to stop and tell other people, oh he has mental problems and he can't help it. I feel bad when I say that.
