My son is 9, he was diagnosed with ADHD, ODD and a mood disorder when he was 6. He takes medication to control the ADHD which seems to help somewhat but he has such a terrible temper. He does not seem to be able to control himself. He blows up over the littlest things. If he does not get his way he gets angry in seconds. Everything we seem to say to him anymore is negative. I feel so horrible because there are days I just can't stand to be around him due to the cruel things he says. I am hoping that someone could offer some advice, encouragement or whatever to help me deal with this. I tend to blow up at him myslef now days because I am so tired of it and don't know how to help him.
