Hi, My 9 year old son still trhows what I call Temper Tantrums. He will be openly defiant, not doing what he is told, then if you try to move him, he fights you. As a general rule he is a nice kid, but when he does this, he is impossible to handle. The Pediatrician said it could be Oppositional Defiance Disorder, but he's not like this everyday and in every situtation. He acted out last week that when I tried to pick him up he faught me and I pulled my back out. If you can help or offer suggestions I would appriciate it. He's a nice kid, but he has to learn to control these temper tantrums or anger issues now!
