"Teens test boundaries, make mistakes and sometimes have little respect for their parents. Teens with ODD experience these normal teenage behaviors but may have a harder time living with them. Sometimes ODD can lead to a more severe disorder known as Conduct Disorder. Left untreated and combined with other personality disorders, oppositional defiant disorder may lead to a lifetime of behavioral complications and personality disorders." - ADDfreeSources: www.pinterest.com/addfreesources/
Disruptive behavior disorders and ADHD have some things in common, such as trouble keeping emotions in check and doing risky, impulsive things. But there are big differences between the two that can affect the strategies used to help your child.
CD (Conduct Disorder) and ODD (Oppositional Defiant Disorder) are quite closely associated in classification and developmental terms. Oppositional Defiant Disorder behaviours are assumed to be precursors to a more serious Conduct Disorder; although this is not a proven hypothesis.
This video is packed with information about Conduct Disorder and is delivered in a creative way that may hold your attention a little longer than some of the pamphlets and websites you have been provided with to learn a little more about your diagnosis. I hope you enjoy.
