I have a 14 yo daughter that was diagnosed with ODD in October and it has been a real struggle for the past 14 years. Reading everything that I have and looking back on her as a child, she has always been strong willed. She started at about 6 months walking and has not stopped. Her terrible 2's started at 18 months and she still has them. She believes that she is always right and she never starts anything and that we are all against her. It actually feels good to know that I am not the only one going through this and I am not crazy. I have heard from so many people that I am the reason for this and that she should be in church and she would not be like this and that I just need to whip her XXX and that would take care of her behavior. No one outside of my immediate family knows exactly what we go through on a daily basis and they dont believe us till they take her for a little bit. My mom kept her for a few months to get here calmed down as she really didnt know what it was like and now she does.
