Life with O.D.D Kids

I have started this group in the hopes of connecting with other Mums who's child/ren have been diagnosed with Oppositional Defiance Dissorder. Hopefully we can find some support and understanding from each other as well as share treatment/handlig advice, and just have a place to vent the occasional frustration we all feel at times!! The new group logo is a picture my son did for one of his home school science projects, I thought I'd put it up here because in a way it's what we're trying to do....catch a rainbow!!!!
