Is Your ADD/ADHD Child's Anger a Sign of Something More?

Ten to 15 percent of children have a diagnosable disruptive disorder, such as oppositional defiant disorder. If any of the following apply, you should seek medical advice:

· Your child is markedly more angry or out of control than his peers

· You hear repeatedly from those you trust that your child is extremely aggressive, even if you don’t see it yourself

· Your child is dangerous to himself

· Other children don’t feel safe around her

· You fear your child

· Your child is consistently disobedient

· Your child lacks empathy or conscience
