What does work for kids with ODD? If rewards and punishments don’t work. Im curious. As for ADD I have that and have my entire life. I have like every symptom of adult ADD. I think with regards to ADD at least we coddle kids to much. There was someone on here asking about colleges that have accommodations and modifcations for college students with ADD for their 20 year old son. I mean at some point they have to modify their behavior instead of the world changing for them. Realistically the world (jobs,colleges,adult relationships) are going to expect them to behave like the adults they are. These kids need to learn coping skills.
