Publisher's Summary

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. 

Here is a preview of what you'll learn:

  • Beginning with what you can control 
  • Managing your anger 
  • Getting professional help
  • Five traits of a strong parent

Great overview

this book was an excellent introduction to the topic. it could be seen as a great review of things you might already know. it was lacking in examples but overall I felt it was useful

could be better

it was informational. helped me understand my child a little better but I still struggle with remaining calm. learning what is intentional and what isnt is so difficult. I'm trying so hard. she is in therapy. she just pushes us to our limits. there are good and bad days but she never quits and it is 90% SO STRESSFUL. she is in so much trouble constantly. we try our hardest not to respond negatively but the things she does are so extreme sometimes and she is only 6. I'm desperate for help. this book just reiterated that we need to remain calm... it's not enough.

Helpful for parents of children with ODD

As adoptive parents of a young child with ODD, this book has been so very helpful. As we learn to navigate best methods for helping our child find their place in life, know and give love, make the best choices she can make, etc, we must first heal ourselves and learn to understand who she is as an individual. Thanks so much for writing this book! We certainly did not know what we were getting in to and feel better prepared Thanks to this book.
