This parenting guide to ODD offers expert information on your child's condition, provides insight and empathy to what they are going through, and equips and empowers you to make practical changes in your parenting approaches. It provides an overview of tried-and-tested techniques from a mother of a child with ODD to support you in response to typical questions you may have:

· "Why is my child acting this way?"
· "What does this say about me?"
· "Why doesn't my child respond to punishment or reward?"
· "What am I supposed to do next?"

Overall this book teaches you how to avoid common mistakes in responding to ODD, the crossover with similar diagnoses such as ADHD and how to distinguish the disorders, how to improve your own resilience and confidence to communicate effectively with your strong-willed child, and start rebuilding the relationship you have.
