 Homeopathy, the best option for kids with ODD.

Safe, Natural, Side-Effect free.

What is ODD or Oppositional Defiant Disorder in children:

Oppositional defiant Disorder in children is a behavioral disorder. Kids with ODD are defiant, stubborn, and uncooperative and show antagonistic or hostile behavior toward others. Most children in their growing years do show signs of ODD, however with compassion and understanding the child can be managed and controlled. However, children diagnosed with ODD show this behavior very often and can be very demanding, difficult to handle, often disobey, argue, and rebel against parents and teachers.

Causes of ODD in children:

Our understanding of the causes of ODD in children is as follows:

Genetics or Sanskaras:

Sanskaras as per Hindu philosophy means mental impressions, something the child could have inherited or born with. We do witness many children who have been in a perfect environment, had the ideal upbringing and still show signs of ODD. In short, we do not know why and can only conclude that the child is born with this behavioral attribute or personality trait.

Child Development & Upbringing:

Often children tend to become defiant by copying the negative enforcement he/she has been exposed to during their early days. Oppositional behavior can be a result of excessive or harsh discipline by parents and sometimes due to the child’s inability to deal with discipline or academic pressure.

Screen time

Kids exposed to inappropriate screen time often show ODD too. Children more than often enjoy and get addicted to their iPads and television shows and may consider inappropriate verbal and body language seen in some cartoons and children shows as normal. Parental supervision, limiting screen time and exposure to the right content is highly advisable.

Related Conditions

Children with conditions like ADHD or Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder, Speech and Cognitive delay, Autism and Anxiety tend to also show signs of ODD.
