difficult child, diagnosed ODD a few months ago, is flaring really bad right now. We were making progress at home with posted family rules, chores, and consequenses. Unfortunately, he's been spending quite a bit of time at biodad's this summer, and when he comes home, he's off the charts disrespectful! He even asked me last week if he could stay home by himself all day rather than go to the grandparents' while husband and I are working! difficult child and daughter are often by themselves at biodad's house (he and his wife both work), so they don't have a lot of authority to deal with. Then they come back to our home and authority figures, and he doesn't seem able to cope very well. Any suggestions for easing the transition from biodad's to our home? We had been making such good progress, then it all blew up last week. Sometimes I wonder if we're ever going to get our heads above water!!!!! I keep trying to look on the bright side, realizing things could be a LOT worse, but then I get kicked in the teeth again (found out tonite that nephew is more than likely autisum spectrum; testing in the future). Too much drama!! In the words of a friend's daughter, "I done! I done! I done!" I'm also wondering, after reading some other posts, if diet may play a role in his flare-ups. How would I go about starting to figure that out? Also, are there any vitamins/supplements/medications that are useful/helpful for this condition? I'm so frustrated trying to find information on ODD! Thanks for listening, and for any suggestions.
