My son is nearly 6, and ADHD/ODD. I beat myself up all the time, too, but honestly, its not a parenting thing. If you are here, researching, posting and feeling horrible I'm sure this has nothing to do with your parenting.

We have been on the Feingold Program for nearly a year and 90% of my sons symptoms of ODD are gone, and 98% of the ADHD, and 100% of his eczema. It is an elimination program. Look into it mama, or at least eliminate food dye 100%, I bet you will see some changes slowly.

There is no pill for ODD so as parents it's all on our shoulders to figure out what best eliminates our kids symptoms.

Lots of parents have good results with serotonin meds like zoloft or celexa so long as there are no suicidal tendencies. Some use risperdal as well. Some add meds work well too. Clonodine and depakote have been used too.

I am not a big med pusher (my dd used meds for several years but is med free for 7 years now). We are considering zoloft again though.

Re: i think my kid has o.d.d.

I am so sorry. I would take him to a neuropsychiatrist for evaluation and treatment.
