Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD)

"Children and adolescents with ODD will find the weakness in the family system and exploit it. Is there tension between father and mother? They will aim to worsen this. Trouble with the in-laws? These children and adolescents will try to exploit this. Are you out of shape and exhausted after work? That's when they will be most trying. Are you worried or depressed about something? They will try to figure it out and torment you. Dealing with a child with ODD is very exhausting and trying. It will take about 1/3 to of all your emotional, mental, and physical resources. If you knew that you would be chopping wood for four hours every day, you would make sure you got enough rest, a good diet, and had plenty of time to relax. The same holds double for dealing with ODD in the long term. You have to take care of yourself in ways you would not have to if your child did not have ODD." Jim Chandler, Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD) and Conduct Disorder (CD) in Children and Adolescents: Diagnosis and Treatment
