Help for Parents with ODD Children

I have an almost 4 year old grandson, who shows symtoms of ODD. Will your program help him? We're at our wits end already and don't know what to do. We recently took him to MelMed Center in Phoenix, AZ for evaluation and the doctor suggested that his behavior may be progressing to ODD. The doctor ordered some blood tests, which we had done today. But, we have to wait another month to get in to see a child psychologist for further evaluation. Examples of his behavior include constant talking, annoying talk and uncontrollable laughter including
name calling, and failure to listen or obey requests. He has sleep problems at night (waking frequently) and fights nap time. During an "episode", he kicks and fights and screams, sometimes lasting for up to 20 minutes. Afterwards, he's usually very remorseful and is "worn out". He is generally a very loving, intelligent, and articulate little boy. Our daughter is a single Mom who is really struggling to get a handle on this situation. Please advise. Thank You!

The Strong-Willed Out-of-Control Teen

The standard disciplinary techniques that are recommended for “typical” teenagers do not take into account the many issues facing teens with serious behavioral problems. Disrespect, anger, violent rages, self-injury, running away from home, school failure, hanging-out with the wrong crowd, drug abuse, theft, and legal problems are just some of the behaviors that parents of defiant teens will have to learn to control.
