I am a friend of a single mother whose child has been "diagnosed" with ODD/ADHD. She has no support whatsoever from those around her and is at her wits' end and can't take it anymore. Her daughter is getting more defiant and physical and is totally out of control. The mother doesn't know what to do but needs a break -- it is all taking its toll physically. Can anyone tell me what to tell her to do when the situation becomes explosive? Obviously, she doesn't want to call the police, but who do you call? Any help is welcome, as this child is like a daughter to me.
