Hey...Im mother of 6yr old boy who's been diagnosed as ODD, it all started about last year when we really noticed something wasn't quite right and this was way more than general naughtiness. He has always been very defiant from the time he learnt to talk, Im very lucky that when I met my husband he wasn't put off by my son's behaviour and wanted to be in our family. Since then we have had another little boy who is now 4 months. DS1 adores baby brother and thinks the world of him although he has admitted he's very jealous. (by the way my name is Batmans because I wanted batmans mom but it wouldn't let me) DS1 thinks he is untouchable, that he is way smarter/faster/stronger than anyone else on the planet, he has stolen in the past from us and the store, he is very very violent towards myself and is now starting to be with others. If a child doesn't 'agree' with him he is spiteful, vindictive and mean to them. I've been called to his school a few times now to talk him down when he has had a major tantrum at school. He is not like other 6yr olds it is like dealing with a very big toddler most of the time, he freaks out over the tiniest disagreement and will literally throw himself around and scream. Its the lying I cant take anymore too, when I know for sure that he is lying to me. He is still wetting the bed, and refuses to go to the toilet in the daytime unless I walk him to the bathroom and make him go, he will dance around on the spot and avoid it til he wets himself. Out in public it becomes a battle of wills which often results in him running off and I have to cut our trip short and go home. Im really really tired now, things are getting bad, my husband is currently deployed and DS1 has really been acting out since he had to go. We are finally seeking help from doctors but so far we've only had 2 trips to see a pyschiartrist but they want to refer him to a child specialist. I've come on here to get tips and just let off steam to those who know what its like.
