Classic Oppositional Defiant Disorder

Tony is one of the most oppositional human beings I have ever met, and he is our 6th son to be diagnosed with either ODD or Conduct Disorder which is ODD on steroids. He just cannot make himself be cooperative.

Here a couple of examples:

At Thanksgiving Kyle's girlfriend wanted to test him to see if it was by choice or not so she offered him 5 bucks to go an hour without saying anything negative. He was debating taking her up on the offer as we all stared at him waiting. He took a sigh, looked around, and his first words during his hour of no negativity were, "I HATE THIS" and then, as we laughed, he flipped me off.

Last night we were talking to him about an email from his teacher saying he was not being respectful at school.

His response, "I'm not doing NOTHING. I don't know what kind of S*** she's smoking."

He can grow up and marry Paloma and then they can have doubly oppositional children.
