Your teen or adult child might be struggling with ODD if he or she is uncooperative and the hostile behavior is so frequent and consistent that it makes them stand out from other youth who are of the same age and developmental level, and it affects their family, friends, work, school and social life.

We all know what anger is, and we've all felt it, whether as a quick annoyance or as full-fledged rage. It’s a completely normal, usually healthy, human emotion. But when your kid’s anger gets out of control and turns destructive, it can lead to problems at work, in his personal relationships, and in the overall quality of his life.
