Hi there. I am glad I found this website. My daughter is about to turn 5 this month. She has always been a strong-willed child but her behavior issues have been increasing over the last year and getting very bad in the last couple of months. She is very defiant and after reading the ODD symptoms list she sounds like a perfect fit! She is having issues at home and at preschool and she may get kicked out of preschool if her behavior doesn't change very soon. They send her to the office and it has no affect on her. She is pushing and hitting other students, knocking down their block towers, drawing on their pictures, pushing and shoving in line, not doing what she is told, purposefully annoying the other students, lies about things she has done, blames others for her behavior etc. She is very smart and has no difficulty learning. She has great attention and does not have any symptoms of ADD at all. Do any of you have children with just ODD and nothing else? I called around to some child psychologists today and I'm waiting to here back. Although she has had some behavior issues for a while, it has really gotten bad quickly to the point that it is affecting our home life and her time in preschool in a major way. I am having a very difficult time with this...we have a younger daughter with health issues and there is just so much to deal with. Thanks for listening. Any advice/support is greatly appreciated.
