Hi, this is my first posting, and I really need help. I am a jr at the university at buffalo w a major in psychology, but still can't learn without personal experiences shared. So, I'm giving this a shot. I know that there are alot of parents with kids that have both ODD and ADHD. My friend does. I don't know what to tell her and I have looked up alot of stuff online. It's all informative etc, but it really stinks at giving advice on the parenting aspect of it. How do I help....? My friends son is 7, he looks like he is relapsing in some of his behavior. The child has spread feces on the wall, is extremely bipolar, and just started getting his little sister to follow in some of his foot steps. I don't want the sister to be so effected by her brother, yet I wouldn't know how to go about parenting a child w such disorders. The biggest thing right now is that he seems like he is off in his own world. He doesn't care what anyone thinks or feels or how his behavior effects everyone else. She has tried every way to go about parenting him, but literally NOTHING is sinking in. Can anyone help me? My friend is ready to give up...... Thanks a ton.
