Hi. I am new to this whole thing. My son (who will be 6 in 2 weeks) hasn't even been diagnosed yet - with anything! It's been a long, slow road - we are still trying to find a decent Dr. for him and the closest one will be 3 hours away and having insurance issues.........anyway that's not the point. What I want to know from you experienced moms and dads is (just your opinion) if my son sounds like a child with ODD. My personal diagnoses is ADHD/ODD. Anyway here's just an example of the behavior that has us at the end of our rope: He is mean! He has physically attacked me more than once. And it's always over something small but, it turns into a huge argument because I'm convinced he likes to argue, get us upset and see our reaction. It's almost like a game for him! So, we will send him to his room (after "counting" like it says in the book 1-2-3 Magic we just read)- which of course isn't that easy. We usually end up carrying/dragging him there while he is hitting/kicking/biting/screaming and anything else he can think of. If we don't hold his door closed I WILL get attacked. So, now that we are not being beat he will rage in his room for 45 minutes or longer. He has kicked 2 holes in his door, put about 100 dents in the wall from throwing things, taken everybook off his bookshelf (we're talking hundreds!) and taken all the sheets etc off his bed. All this is on 2 or 3 seperate occasions, not all at once. And all the while he is sort of singing to himself, nice and calm and methodical. I can handle the not listening, the sassy mouth, the attitude. But the violence and rages is not something I can handle! It's gotten to the point where this is happening about 3 times a week. It seems like we can't disipline him or this is what we get. But that's not the only thing that sets him off - there doesn't seem to be a pattern. But, this isn't just ADHD - is it? Opinions? Comments? Support? Something? PLEASE HELP!
