If you have a young person who you know has ODD, you can help him behave acceptably by no using direct commands, say things like, “We need to clean up before we go outside” instead of “Clean that up, right now”. When you’re dealing with an older child, consider making requests for them to do chores or activities in writing rather than giving verbal commands.

Your teenager or young adult might only regard drug abuse as the use of illicit drugs and alcohol, but there are a lot of other types of substances involved. Kids commonly use tobacco products, inhalants, painkillers, cough medicine, steroids, energy drinks and other products containing alcohol and cannabis. Many of these are readily available and not against the law.
