Let’s face it…all children misbehave sometimes. One of the questions that we frequently ask ourselves when our children are engaging in unwanted behaviors is, “Why?” A child’s behavior almost always serves some type of purpose for that child; however, when you find yourself with more questions than answers it may be time to consider a more serious condition such as Oppositional Defiant Disorder or ODD. ODD is defined by a recurrent pattern of developmentally inappropriate levels of negativistic, defiant, disobedient, and hostile behavior toward authority figures. Children with this disorder are best served by a licensed mental health professional who can provide both individual and family therapy.
