Hello, I am new here, but am so relieved to have found this site. My eldest son (nearly 9) has just been diagnosed with ODD, after a 6+ year battle to be taken seriously. We knew something wasn't right pretty much from birth, and have been struggling ever since. It is a daily battle and I am at the end of my tether and so exhausted. My other children don't have any behavioural problems. If anyone has any coping strategies to share I would be very grateful.
