Dont understand why addicts will accept help from others and change, than from their own family. Never will get that and will always be angry about it

Both my adoptive granddaughters are diagnosed as oppositional defiance disorder (ODD) and I know the harder I push for things they need - they push back even more NOT to do what I know is best for them.

If anyone else could get through to them, where I can't, I would be grateful. Maybe also a little irritated because I know it's what they have heard a hundred times before.

So infuriating...


Long road but the path ahead holds hope.
My son gets a lot from his rehab couselor if she can get through to him when I can not and it helps. All for it. But yes it is very frustrating.


100% better than I was but not at 100% yet
Agree they don't listen to the people they love the most for some reason. I feel like most of what we say to our son is seriously wasted energy.
