I'm sorry to hear you're experiencing problems with your child. I don't think that these are the traits of ODD, it actually sounds like your kid could be suffering from the downs (down syndrome). Take a look at these traits: Understanding Down Syndrome -- Signs At what age did he learn to speak / communicate? The issue may not be with him not respecting ...

When I read your first paragraph, I thought, "yep, that's my little one, too." However, I was very surprised to see how quickly he's labeled ODD. I never thought my child had ODD. I thought she was just being an energetic young child, doing everything she could to explore the world, including finding out what breaks, what triggers mom+dad, what limits she ...

TL;DR: 1-2-3 Magic: Effective Discipline for Children 2–12 by Thomas W. Phelan Ah, the joys of parenting. You haven't said anything about if he has siblings, and if so, where is he in birth order, and how he treats them. Please allow me to go on a bit about ODD since it sounds like a possibility.

Please look into buying a book called 123 Magic. I can't praise this book highly enough. One of the things it allows for is to provide consequences without engaging in any arguments with the child - basically allowing you to disengage in useless debate/discussions about bad behavior.

My son was in a very similar situation two years ago. In addition to my follow up answer, I would like to add that the main thing we discovered is there was almost nothing we could do at home about his behavior at school. We offered everything from spectacular rewards down to harsh punishments for a year, to little avail. He stopped taking his frustration ...

A great way to proceed here is to try and discover the source of your child's frustration. Some common sources of frustration: Has your child's routine recently changed? Is your child feeling jealous of the time you spend with his younger brother? Does he feel that he's unable to communicate his thoughts? Is your child getting enough rest during the ...

I would suggest at least initially offering a variety of pillows. Different people have different pillow preferences based on how they sleep; a back sleeper wants a firmer, thinner pillow, a side sleeper wants a firmer, thicker pillow, and a front sleeper wants a softer, middle-thickness pillow, most commonly, but even there you see a huge range. As a ...

I often used to accompany my Mom when she used to go shopping to buy things for me. This is something I learnt from my Mom when she used to select my pillows when I was a little girl. You should press the pillow before you buy. It shouldn't be too hard or too soft. Children's posture and spine gets damaged if the pillow is too hard or too soft. An ideal ...

Looking at the design of the product it looks remarkably like an automatic punch with a blade recessed into the handle. The kinds of situation it's meant for seem to be serious car accidents where the seatbelt has become jammed or the occupant is trapped, so we're not addressing minor shunts and the forces involved before the hammer is required will be ...

I personally think that having a three year-old clean up his own feces would not be a good idea; too much opportunity to make a mess or create an association that the potty is negative. I have a great deal of luck following the Incredible Years theories when potty training my two boys. I participated in several parent groups through Head Start. What I ...
