My son was diagnosed with ODD (Oppisitional Defiance Disorder) about 2 years ago and were told he has some developmental delays. He is in 1st grade this year. My child lies alot and used to have tantrums where he would try and hurts his self. (Bang toys or anything on his head till it was bleeding) When he started Kindergarten he improved almost 100 percent. As far as the accidents my son still has them an average of 1-2 times a week. He doesn't realize he has to go until he feels it in his underwear. We are dealing with this as best as we can.......what else can you do?
Your son does sound VERY small 7 years old and 34 pounds? There is something going on. My suggestion is if you aren't getting anwers/test from his pediatrician...it is time to find a new doctor. Does he complain of stomach aches alot? Any rashes?
He has not complained of stomach aches or rashes. The pedi that he has which is 2 different onces in the office that we go to are the only ones that have taken the time to listen to me. They are both females. The males doctors i have seen have blown me off and just told me to put him on the potty more often. Or they would give me medications that he didnt need so that he would poop,which just turned it into a big mess. Now we are having him see a gi pedi and after the 2nd time she saw him he hadnt grown any in 2 months, she was even more concerned then she was the first time she met him. She found out after the first apt and blood work she orded that he was anemic. She is no skirting around like the doctors my son has had in the past. I am wondering what oppisitional defiance disorder is.
