So I just typed out this long into about my DS who his doctor said is displaying ODD and sure enough, the finger brushed the touch pad and it's all gone. Lovely! Short(er) and sweet version - My DS is five and in a pre-K/K class at a daycare center. Daily he has physical contact, but not agressive or with malice. If someone breaks a lego thing he's been working on, he'll hit or push the kid to get him away. If someone is running around the class when the shouldn't be, A will hit him to stop him. Obviously not going about things the right way. When these things happen, he doesn't respond well to the teachers correcting him. At home and almost all other situations, he's a fantastic kid - shares, thinks of others, respectful, polite, etc. If something happens, we are consistant with time-outs and he goes willingly everytime. No tantrums or fighting it. Hitting at home is very rare and if it does, it's him bonking his little sister on the head as he passes by. I look at that as sibling rivalry, but the time out is the same. So, my question is this, could it still be ODD or any type of conduct disorder if it only occurs in one situation. If those behaviors do not occur or are easily corrected in other situations or with other people, could it still be true ODD?? I would think that those behaviors would be displayed in multiple areas, multiple situations. I am really wondering if the problem isn't my son, whom is not perfect, but is a nice kid everywhere else, but a pain at school. Is it possible that it's the school? I'm not there so I don't know if they are being consistant, following up with concerstations, monitoring, etc Thoughts?!
