Publisher's Summary

If your child has recently been diagnosed with Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD), or if you suspect that your child may have ODD, this book is for you! 

Opposition Defiant Disorder (ODD) is a disorder in which the child displays a persistent showing of anger, hostility, aggression and abuse towards his or her family, teachers, or any other authority. When a child has an ODD, he or she will often be persistently stubborn; resisting any request or directive made by an adult. We will not be willing to compromise or bargain with adults, or even their peers. These children will do things just to test your patience and limitations, and will always refuse to accept that they have done something wrong even when they have done it.

The important thing to understand is that these kids are not deliberately cruel. They believe in their hearts that the requests you make of them are unjust and unjust. Therefore, saying no is the best thing to do from their point of view. This kind of conduct also causes the child to suffer socially, academically and, most importantly, psychologically.

Fortunately, this condition is treatable, and with proper guidance, a parent may make great strides with his or her daughter. If you are a parent who has a child with ODD, this book will teach you several ways to deal with and hopefully handle your son, so that you can have a happy and productive home again.

Chapters include: 

  • "Introduction"
  • "What Is ODD?"
  • "Does Your Child's Behavior Show Signs of Oppositional Defiant Disorder? "
  • "What Causes ODD?"
  • "What Is the Difference Between Common Disobedience and ODD?"
  • "Odd Symptoms and Prevalence"
  • "Treatment for Oppositional Defiant Disorder"
  • "Dialectical Behavior Therapy"
  • "Family Therapy"

And much more...

Your son or daughter is not a monster. These children and teenagers often suffer terribly and sometimes express their discomfort in ways we do not understand.

Listening to this book tomorrow will not magically solve all your child's problems, but I promise that if you read and review every chapter carefully, absorb all the tips and apply the strategies offered in this manual, then you'll be well on your way to restoring a healthier relationship with your son or daughter, and increasing the chances of a brighter future for both of you.

Awkardly narrated, poorly edited

This audiobook was hard to listen to. The content was good; I understand more about ODD and its treatment than I did before listening. HOWEVER. The narration is, I'm sorry to be brutal, incompetent. The narrator frequently mispronounces words. He also pauses awkwardly at the ends of lines as if he is reading the text for the first time. Perhaps most troubling his his habit of emphasizing the wrong words in sentences, rendering the meaning unclear. It seems the reader was either unfamiliar with the material or just didn't understand what he was reading.

The text itself is either poorly written or terribly edited. It reads as though it written in another language and run through Google translate. "Patients" are often referred to "customers," and often, pronouns don't match their subjects.

If I had it to do over, I would read the book instead of listening.
