Parenting a child with ODD



Parenting a child with ODD doesn’t have to be hard. Fixing child behavior problems becomes easier when using the behavior skill of Correcting Behaviors. Correcting Behaviors allows you to correct any issues that arise in a way that helps prevent them from happening again, and that enables you to regain control of the situation. When you are able to describe what they did wrong. Deliver a doable consequence. Provide a reason that matters to them for the new behavior. Allow them to reduce that consequence, they are more likely to change the behavior. Kids with ODD will need to be corrected often, so this skill will help you remain calm during the many corrections.

Oppositional defiant disorder treatment strategies require consistency. ODD children will argue and fight with you and other authority figures. This is how they have been conditioned to figure out what your boundaries are and what they can get away with. When you aren’t consistent, they will use it against you. It will take patience and consistency on your part to see the change happen. Just keep at it and don’t give up. Eventually, the change will happen if you are consistent.

Here are some tips when using Correcting Behaviors with an ODD child:

Be patient. Most likely, you will have to return and address issues over and over. This can be frustrating. Remember that this isn’t an overnight fix. Remember it’s ok to resolve the issue at a later date when you and your child are both calm.

Practice a lot. We recommend that any parent who is trying to implement a new behavior practice at least 3 times. Most ODD children are going to need more than that, but 3 is the minimum number of times they should practice. The more they practice, the more the new behavior will become ingrained.

Make a plan. Take time to consider how you will implement the skill of Correcting Behaviors and what poor behavior you will tackle first.

Know how to reduce the consequence for practice. Never wholly do away with a consequence, but decide on something fair for practicing. For example, if the consequence is 10 minutes less video game time, for practicing, they may only lose 5. This help a child know there is a benefit in changing their behavior.

Be consistent. As you begin, your child will test your boundaries and your ability to be consistent, so don’t give in.
