What is oppositional defiant disorder(odd)?

1 doctor answer
Dr. William Holmes
33 years experience in Child Psychiatry
Severe Defiance: Odd is sometimes seen as something that any child could have. However, the diagnois should only be used with kids who have a long history (at least 6 months) of problems with severe defiance, arguing, temper outbursts, and a lack of taking responsibility for his/her actions, among other symptoms. These problems must cause significant impairment of functioning for the diagnosis to be made.
