I have 1 difficult child who is ten and I stumbled across this forum hoping to find some sense of relief. After doing a ton of research, I think that he might have a touch of ODD. He has been diagnosed with ADHD since he was 6. He is very angry all the time which depresses me in the worst way. I just don't understand how or why life can be that hard for someone that young. He wakes up angry. He goes to bed angry. We can't say one word to him without getting attitude and yelled at. Everything. Everything. Everything pisses him off. Everything. He takes no responsibility for anything and always has excuses - no matter how unreasonable they are. Some are so completely unrealistic that it is absurd. I'm so tired of him being mad at the world. It's not fair to him and it surely isn't fair to us. I need help.
