Disruptive Behaviors in Children with Oppositional Defiant Disorder

Video taken from the channel: The Mental Breakdown

Signs of Disruptive Behavior Disorders. Children with a disruptive behavior disorder will show repeated and persistent patterns of anger, defiance, backtalk, trouble managing and regulating their emotions, and even hostile or aggressive behavior toward grownups or other children. The behavior is basically what you might see in a typical child, but more—more. Here are some signs that your child may need help from a professional in order to better handle or manage his or her behavior. Violent tantrums: Many kids have tantrums, but if your child’s tantrum becomes violent (including kicking, biting, punching and other actions), there’s a good chance this behavior is the result of a disorder.

The most common types of disruptive behavior disorders include disruptive behavior disorder not otherwise specified (DBD NOS), oppositional defiant disorder (ODD) and conduct disorder (CD). Children with these behavioral disorders can be stubborn, difficult, disobedient, and irritable. Children with conduct disorder show the same responses to authority figures as.

It’s common for children to display behavior problems such as tantrums, being defiant, talking back, and not listening. There’s probably not a parent. Español (Spanish) Children sometimes argue, are aggressive, or act angry or defiant around adults. A behavior disorder may be diagnosed when these disruptive behaviors are uncommon for the child’s age at the time, persist over time, or are severe.

Warning signs that your child may have a mental health disorder include: Persistent sadness — two or more weeks Withdrawing from or avoiding social interactions. 18 Warning Signs Your Child May Have ADHD. or general disruptive behavior (e.g., calling out, being silly, making noise) that is making it hard for the child to participate effectively in the.

Getty. All children go through emotional ups and downs. Feeling sad, angry or frustrated from time to time is normal. Life-changing events can take a toll on kids, and lead to changes in their behavior. It’s important for parents to recognize the difference between normal “growing pains” and behavioral problems.

Physical: Children who were born of low birth weight or those who suffered neurological damage are at a greater risk for developing disruptive behavior disorders. Additionally, those with a disruptive behavior disorder have been known to have an imbalance of certain neurotransmitters in the brain, such as serotonin. Disruptive behavior disorders like ODD and conduct disorder are said to be the most common psychiatric conditions diagnosed in children worldwide.

Studies have shown that conduct disorder affects 1-4% of adolescents in the United States and oppositional defiant disorder is estimated to develop in approximately 10.2% of children.

  • My son has O.D.D. but so far, he’s had great behavior at school (Kindergarten). He has some learning disabilities which we are navigating through right now, but no behavior issues at school. His behavior at home is horrible. He is argumentative with his siblings and my husband and I. Anytime he’s told “No” he goes into a total meltdown. Why is his bad behavior seemingly reserved for home?

  • I think I might have some form of this. I really like having friends and am invested in how people think of me but sometimes I feel compelled to do, say or think decidedly anti-social things. I think about how people would react if I said something very hurtful or offensive or if I just randomly punched someone for no apparent reason. I know what would happen if I ever did or said any of this shit to people because I used to have behavioral issues as a kid. I would feel very brief catharsis and then immediately regret it. These ideas make me afraid that I might say or do something very stupid and get in a lot of trouble. Thankfully I never do any of this stuff but it’s the fact that I fantasize about hurting people which bothers me.

  • My niece is 2 1/2. She doesn’t have disorders or anything but goddamn she’s too destructive then taunts you “I did it, I did it…” She’s too bitchy/whiney too. Love her but goddamn!

  • For every family that goes through these struggles, you are not alone. I am not an expert at all, but have friends that are. My 6 yr olds behaviour can escalate in a blink of an eye and it can be crushing to the soul, especially when you have spent their lives trying to find a solution. All I can say is the gut has alot to do with emotions and behaviours and if you can try, thats a start… Its not for everyone and I know food also can be expensive… Just putting it out their. My firend has an autistic son who would have severe meltdowns everyday. Her friend in Australia recommended the GAPS book which is eliminating dairy/gluten. She was at the end of the line and tried. Its been 6 months and not one meltdown… I am going to do this for pur whole family. We are huge gluten/dairy eaters and it will be hard, but if we can limit the meltdowns and have a healthier family… Im willing to try anything.

  • Odd kids are argumentative,defiant,outbursts,
    Love to annoy and torment
    And constantly interrupting
    They truly ruin a family
    NO. B.S.

  • My 4 yr old can go from loving son to a fricken animal in literally 2 seconds!!!!
    I cannot deal with him anymore and it’s destroying our family life.
    My older children lock themselves in there room,and it’s all but ruined my marriage as mom looks at me like a piece of shit because I cannot deal with him anymore.
    I’m seriously questioning his birth every day of my life!!
    Unless you deal with these kids and this order first hand…PLEASE DONT JUDGE!!!!!

  • ADHD is lack of executive functioning. Lack of self regulation. Russell Barkley is connecting ODD to this Las of executive functioning.

  • My son has both adhd and odd we use daily routine but its a struggle at times with hime and as well with school. What you said today on video i watched it was great infromation

  • ODD best describes my grandson who I basically have custody of. He feels like his mom cares more about her boyfriend than him. He goes to a child psychologist once a week. It doesn’t seem to be working. This is absolutely breaking my heart. He is disruptive in class. 1st grade. Won’t finish his school work. Won’t do the work in the classroom. Somebody give me some advice on how to deal with him. Please. If I don’t keep him he will go into Foster Care. Help me please

  • I feel dumb sometimes. It happens often when I cook eggs. When I mess up on an egg I start cussing up a storm. Don’t even get me started on messing up on two eggs. I freaking explode and start punching the counter. My fist gets swollen and red from all the anger. It’s never with any other cooking mistakes. Just eggs. There are other things that can sometimes set me off, but these are all things that aren’t really worth getting angry for. I could NEVER work at Waffle House or any other diner. Then an hour later, I feel like the day is normal. I don’t show this to people. I don’t like to scare them or put anyone in distress, but it does scare family because it just happens. It’s like something just ticks and I explode. So I try not to cook eggs any other way, other than scrambled. I’m afraid of that yolk breaking, because, I’m going to explode if I see it breaking, even though I know logically, it is nothing but an egg

  • Every single morning I have the same issues getting my son to dress himself for school. He doesn’t have the violent outburst with anyone else but me his mom. Others he will be defiant but every time he is told no or stop doing something and focus on what needs to be finished he becomes violent and yelling. throwing things at me or trying to break them. I dont know what to do. this morning he threw my phone at the living room tv and busted it.. Please any suggenstions

  • Appreciate Video clip! Forgive me for chiming in, I would appreciate your thoughts. Have you thought about Trentvorty Kids Science Theorem (Sure I saw it on Google)? It is a great exclusive product for becoming an excellent parent minus the headache. Ive heard some incredible things about it and my buddy after a lifetime of fighting got great results with it.

  • I have ocd and odd and its a really bad combo let me tell you that much. One time when I was around 10 I wanted to tell my parents to wake up and my sister just knocked on the door instead of letting me tell my parents to wake up and when she went to get changed after (i didn’t know she was getting changed) I was so angry at what she did that I pulled on the door handle to her room so hard the door unlocked from being locked and my sister was half-naked (I looked away as soon as I realized and don’t remember seeing her thankfully) I felt so bad afterwards and all the anger when I look back turns into shame and embarrassment. ODD is the worst because you just annoy everyone around you all the time and no one enjoys being around you or wants to be your friend. At least people with most other disorders get a chance at not being hated by everyone in their whole grade or even their whole school and have a chance at making decent friends that don’t get them in trouble like mine did and then eventually find you annoying as they get older. And then to think this is all your fault and the people you met aren’t mean or anything like that, it’s all you that’s been the problem, its all too much to handle sometimes which is probably why people with ODD are at high risk for developing depression and anxiety, the worst disorder ever.

  • Any normal person can loose control at times under intense stress. Its scary. I could have been put in this catergory i guess…My spiteful collegue who had been harrassing me for months said one thing to belittle me in front of a room full of people and I just snapped and nearly assulted her physically.
    Luckily I didnt but i was SO CLOSE to doing it. It scares me even now. At the time I was under so much pressure and couldnt take her bullying any more.

  • OMG (Jawdrop) THIS IS MY MOM’s LIFE and what I have had to deal with my whole life!!


    My only regret is not knowing this much earlier in my life so I wouldn’t feel so isolated and removed from the Mother/son relationship. It has been so hard to deal with throughout my life of vindictive, resentful, argumentative and persistent defiant behavior that also defected blame to others (mostly right back at me) that it has worn our relationship down to the bare bone fact that she is my mother, and I am her son. I wish I could still love her, but I don’t, and although I have attempted forgiveness and have tried; I can’t. I can’t love her like a mother. I can only care. and even caring is dis-associative.

    Thankfully, she was never “physically” violent, and she has never been aggressive (beyond mental towards others) or never stole items.

    Thank you for helping me at least understand her in her twilight years. Unfortunately, the decades of damage O.D.D. has done on our relationship can not be recovered.

  • people need an outlet for their anger which is normal

    people need safe supported appropriate environments for expressing their more intense feelings

    kick boxing can be helpful yet having a core energetic therapist present to guide you while you use a punching bag is best

    sun bear taught about an exercise called digging a hole where you go out into nature and dig a small hole in the ground big enough to put your face into as you lay on the ground to then yell and scream all of your angst into

    this is an excellent way to clear built up feelings from your psyche

    you have to have a strong sense of yourself and and a belief in something greater than yourself spiritually that keeps you feeling enough self love as you do this exercise

    also i heard that pyromania has sexual abuse as a cause for this behavior especially sexual abuse tied with religious criticism

  • Can you do a Video specifically on BPD? There are still very few professional Videos out there that represent People with Borderline in a respectful manner and give enough Information on causes and Treatment. Since I am likely to have BPD, it really bothers me.

    I’ve also got a question: Is the intermitten explosive disorder in any way related to BPD? As I have experienced those outbursts in Connection with my mood swings and Anger issues. I haven’t had a clear diagnosis yet, but the more I hear about this disorder, the more likely it seems that I have it. Plus, the last doctor I went to told me, although he can’t give me a diagnosis yet, it looks a lot like BPD.

  • This video pretty much describes my entire life ever since the age of 3 or so. Wow. I am taking Seroquel AKA Quetiapine, and I find it very effective towards anxiety and impulse control. This video is so useful compared to the other rubbish videos about “handling dark thoughts”, or “managing self hatred”.

  • ODD….. I rather call it, not quite got the emotional handling skills. They just need loads of love patience and hugs. Picture cards are brilliant at reducing the ODD outbursts. The more peace and quiet they have the more time they have for working things out. Not everyone can handle the speed of life. A good walk in the woods can help ease things for them.

  • These are the least talked about disorders I have oppositional defiant disorder and I feel like no one understands me when I tell people about it they dont even know what it is

  • idk why I find these disorders so interesting..?,, probably have one of these if i didn’t have such good self control (and the ability to bite myself instead of harm others) I could have ied? but I’m only like that when i get really stressed hdshvdsh

  • So you have a disorder where the person who has it can’t be social, and the professional community name is it the dic disorder? Was the shit head disorder too subtle? There is a slight bit of contempt there.

  • Who excactly are you? and what are you basing your presentation on? specifically.
    It seems that all focus is on “the problem” with behaviour, decided by people that somehow come across experiences they contribute to certain people, and thereby fixate on ideas that this person is mentally ill.
    What is often the case is, that people will make preposterous accusations rather than having to actually deal with, or relate to people, that they feel are “out of reach”.

    What is also relevant is to note, that mental illness is a dynamic discription made mainly by people that do not experience the illness or symptoms, but people around such patients, that decide what is wrong about them, although not persuing to aid this individual, but rather get away from them.

    What is the benefit of stigma, when no help comes along?

  • My brother was adopted (I mean, we’re all adopted in my family) but his mother did tons of drugs while he was in the womb. He’s at a very scary level of conduct disorder. Therapists won’t help, police won’t help when he BROKE OUR CARS AND ATTEMPTED AND TO MURDER HIS OWN FAMILY. Nothing can be done my parents are fearing for their lives and our money and belongings. And especially the lives of our animals. He always abuses my dog!!
    Any advice? I caught my mom crying in silence in the kitchen yesterday, because if she even tries to speak with him he gets immediately violent! I’m seeking help for him, we’re all trying our very hardest.

  • Great Video clip! Excuse me for chiming in, I would love your opinion. Have you ever tried Trentvorty Kids Science Theorem (Have a quick look on google cant remember the place now)? It is an awesome one of a kind guide for becoming an excellent parent without the hard work. Ive heard some great things about it and my good mate called Gray finally got amazing success with it.

  • So glad im not alone my 7 year old is a mess. I try so hard but w.e she does the younger 2 copy n it makes my home a shipwreck. She tortures her older brother n lil siblings. Dr said she has ADHD but i believe she has this too. At a point of time she was so sweet den she started having seizures at a young age n it fell apart. She makes me regret alot of this i dne ive said stuff i regret to her. I give her everything i never have. I love her dearly but jus cant deal with her. I find myself overwhelmed n cryn when she goes to sleep. Shed look at me wit demon eyes n jus keep lost too

  • Question “authority” always. Question what right they think they have to have any authority over anyone. All the problems today can be traced back to the point at which they (someone) first tried to standardize society. Society can’t be successfully standardized, it’s impossible. We are all unique individuals, and thus cannot possibly all be squeezed into one standard mold, regardless of how broad-based it may be. We are not iRobot… We are not a hive of insects… True, mob-mentality and herd-mentality are phenomena which exist, and they (you know, they, them, those who occupy the seats of power, whatever you choose to call them) found ways to capitalize on and exploit such phenomena to their advantage, which is how societal slavery became a thing. Religion and government are both means of control by which a handful of individuals, an oligarchy, control and manipulate large groups of other individuals, largely without their knowledge or consent.

  • Nice Video clip! Apologies for the intrusion, I would love your thoughts. Have you researched Trentvorty Kids Science Theorem (do a search on google)? It is a good one off guide for becoming an excellent parent minus the hard work. Ive heard some incredible things about it and my close friend Aubrey after a lifetime of fighting got excellent results with it.

  • good summarisation of a disorder that’s not understood.

    Many of us go through a large segment of our lives without help as we push others away, making it difficult.

  • i have a 2 year old who acts like all the comments i have read below. i’m so worried because her behavior continues to worsen. It went from tantrums to acting very aggressive and controlling. I have tried everything routine, baths before bed, music.. Her environment is very calm but she cries every single night when she has to go to bed she cries every single day about not getting her way she throws her self every where when she doesn’t get her way she just shuts down. I’m at my breaking point �� She is starting to act just like her dad he was very abusive and i think he has intermittent explosive disorder. how do i appropriately handle a two year old who is completely out of control. Spanking and time out has done nothing positive discipline also hasn’t worked �� I always thought distracting and redirecting behavior is a great way to avoid prolonged shit fits but not my daughter.

  • Appreciate Video clip! Forgive me for chiming in, I would love your opinion. Have you heard about Trentvorty Kids Science Theorem (just google it)? It is a great one of a kind product for training your child for success minus the normal expense. Ive heard some pretty good things about it and my work buddy finally got great results with it.
