I had no idea this site existed, I actually Googled "when you can't stand your child" and this popped up. So I guess I'm not alone . I have an almost 15 year old son diagnosed on the spectrum (aspergers), depression, he's definitely has ODD. He makes our daily lives basically a living hell. If he doesn't get his way in every single instance you might as well take cover. He begins yelling, hitting, throwing, destroying anything he feels like. He's on 3 different medications, we have tried countless combinations to no avail. Many have only made him worse. I have three daughters who are 11,9, & 5 who are generally terrified of him-they have been victims of his rages, both of our dogs are scared of him. We've done therapy, impatient, outpatient programs, nothing seems to get through to him. He is completely unreasonable to just about everything. Will not take no for an answer. Every single thing is an argument. It has deeply affected my marriage as my husband and I don't always see eye to eye and he works a lot leaving me to deal with this. I don't know a single other person in my life who has a child like this and often feel like it is something I have done wrong. I feel like a terrible mother for subjecting my daughters to this, there are so many things we can't do or that are ruined because of his behavior.
