    Welcome. We look forward to hearing your input to others as well as learning more about you and your twins. I am also a Warrior Mom of twins. Are you comfortable with the ODD diagnosis? That's one that I, and many others, tend to disregard because it is only a descriptor. It doesn't tell us WHY the child is defiant and there is always a reason.

    Again Welcome.

    HI there and welcome! You do indeed sound like you are a true, I am always amazed at all of you with twins. I met a mom today in our therapy clinic with twin boys age 7 too....she walked in and one went to climb on the backs of chairs the other was flipping a figit he had (and still needing to drink from a bottle) and she was trying to go over and tie a shoe and I thought, OH MY WORD.... at least I have ONE direction to run after my kid.... (she also had a sweet but normally demanding 9 yr old with her).

    Will love learning more about you and your family!
