I have a 6yr daughter that has ODD. I also have a soon to be 14 yro, and an 17 month old. My question is: I have been reading these posts for days now and what I am seeing is that we, the parents, need to medicate ourselves heavily until the disruptive child out grows the condition, right? How is this helping me be a decent parent to the others? I have tried medications, they make me sick. I have already been using most of the methods that you speak of here even the new one with Omega 3s. I just dont get it, how is this going to work? I have three children to attend to - not just this one. To deal with her I have to be sedated and that means that the other two suffer because I am sedated. Seems kinda stupid. So here I am stuck with finding a way to deal with a child that has no right to do this to me and everyone else in the family. Got it.
