Oppositional Defiance Disorder

The Fight to Change

Free your child from the depression and the stress ODD puts on the family. Just prevent any possible risk factors such as over spoiling your child or not treating them with much respect. Yes, I know there are some things you can not help such as close family members with mental problems. Just try to keep your child safe from ODD as much as possible.

Coping with ODD

If you or your child has ODD just hang in there. Try therapy at first, then ask your psychiatrist if you or your child will need medications. Just try to find ways to calm yourself such as deep breaths or writing notes and ripping them up and throwing them away. Take time for yourself, get involved in sports and other activities to cool down. Be forgiving, start everyday with a clean slate, think of everyday as a new start.
