Children can be difficult; this is a given. But sometimes a child’s difficult behavior occurs so often and is so severe that it can negatively impact family relationships. This series covers the diagnosis that, believe it or not, is an opportunity to change your child’s life for the better. While all children have symptoms of oppositional defiant disorder (ODD) from time to time, there are certain factors that differentiate whether a child’s difficult behavior can be managed at home, or whether there’s a need for outside intervention. This series will walk you through how to recognize whether this behavior warrants professional help, how to find the right mental health providers if that’s the case, what treatment options are available, and how to successfully parent difficult behavior in the long-term. Welcome to your crash course for parenting combative kids.
