If your child has recently been diagnosed with oppositional defiant disorder (ODD), or if you believe your child may have ODD, then this audiobook is for you! New and improved version released July 2015!
Oppositional defiant disorder (ODD) is a disorder where a child shows a constant display of negativity, defiance, disobedience, and downright violence toward their parents, teachers, or any other authority figure. When a child has ODD, he or she will often be persistently stubborn; resisting any request or directive made by an adult. He or she will be unwilling to compromise or negotiate with adults or even with their peers. These children will do things just to test your patience and limits and will always refuse to accept they have done something wrong, even when they have.
The important thing to understand is these children are not intentionally devilish. They believe in their heart the requests you make of them are unjust and unreasonable. Therefore, saying "No" is the best thing to do from their perspective. Often, this kind of behavior will cause the child to suffer socially, academically, and, most importantly, emotionally.
Luckily, this disorder is treatable, and with proper guidance, a parent can achieve great progress with his or her child. If you are a parent who has a child with ODD, then this audiobook will show you some ways you can cope with and eventually treat your child so you can have a peaceful and cooperative home once again.
