Oppositional Defiant Child
One year ago, my eleven-year son was diagnosed as an oppositional defiant child. At the time, therapy was recommended, so my husband and I took our son in for about ten visits. Supposedly, the therapy was geared to kids with oppositional defiant disorder. Problem is the therapy hasn't really changed our son's behavior at home and after a recent blowout with the therapist, my son simply refuses to go back and see him.
Truth be told, I was uncomfortable with therapy because I didn't like a third party prying into our private lives, even though he was trying to help.
I love my son, but I am tired of our home life being destroyed by his chronic disrespect, anger and defiance. This attitude is also getting him into trouble at school and of course, his grades are horrible.
I don't want to give up on my son, but I'm exhausted and so is my husband.
If therapy didn't work, what's next? I truly am afraid for my son's future. No one is going to want to deal with him.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
