Oppositional Defiant Disorder is usually called ODD. The truth is that, there is a thin line between children’s opposing power and those not directly doing that! Yes, especially, when children with such conduct are not flippant enough to be seen as ODD. Now to differentiate the two scenarios above, we may need to consider the case when parents are informed of the bad behaviors of their kids and to a great measure the disobedience by their kids, however, this has to be observed for a while.... Well, I mean when this conduct goes on for a long period of time (let’s say over six months) or when the defiant conduct is observed to be bigger and steadier compared to other children of the same age, then we may have the capacity to characterize the behavioral issue as Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD). I enjoin you to get a copy of the book: Oppositional Defiant Disorder: The Easy Ways to Managing Oppositional Defiant Disorder and Conduct Disorder in Children!today.

Every day can be an ordeal for families struggling with the difficult, moody, "impossible" behavior that may point to childhood depression or bipolar disorder. Effective help for kids does exist, but it often requires a customized combination of medication, therapy, coping skills, and support. From esteemed clinician and researcher Dr. Mary Fristad and fellow treatment expert Dr. Jill Goldberg Arnold, this indispensable book explains how treatment works and what additional steps parents can take at home to help children with mood disorders--and the family as a whole--improve the quality of their lives. Explained are why symptoms look so different (and can be so much harder to manage) in children and teens than in adults, how to find the right doctor or therapist, and how to help kids develop their own "coping toolkits." Bursting with practical tools, FAQs, and examples, the book covers everything from dealing with medical crises to resolving school problems, sibling conflicts, and marital stress.

Screaming, swearing, crying, hitting, kicking, spitting, biting...these are some of the challenging behaviors we see in kids who are having difficulty meeting our expectations. These behaviors often leave parents feeling frustrated, angry, overwhelmed, and desperate for answers. In this fully revised and updated book, Dr. Ross Greene helps you understand why and when your child does these things and how to respond in ways that are nonpunitive, nonadversarial, humane, and effective. Dr. Greene describes how best to: Understand the factors that contribute to challenging episodes. Identify the specific situations in which challenging episodes are likely to occur. Reduce or eliminate challenging episodes by solving the problems that cause them. Solve problems collaboratively (rather than unilaterally) and proactively (rather than reactively). Help your child develop the skills to be more flexible, solve problems, and handle frustration more adaptively. Reduce hostility and antagonism between you and your child. With Dr. Greene's practical, expert guidance, you and your child will forge a new relationship based on communication and mutual respect.
