How to Deal with ODD?

[deleted account] ( no moms have responded yet )

My son is showing symptoms of ODD or Oppositional Defiant Disorder. I'm a single mother and my son is 8 yrs old. Although most times he is acting like an ordinary kid, there are days that he could really get quite violent, says foul words and even hurts me physically. I always control myself though not to hurt or spank him because I believe that it could only worsen his behavior. Many people judge me for that because they think I tolerate his behavior and that I'm not disciplining my child. But I think his case is special..

Is there someone out there who has similar experience/situation? how do you deal with it?
