How is oppositional defiant disorder similar to ADHD?
Kids who lose their temper a lot, refuse to follow rules, argue with adults, and say mean things to other people are often diagnosed with oppositional defiant disorder (ODD). It usually goes away within 3 years in about 60% of kids. But studies have shown that about 30% of children with ODD also develop conduct disorders.
