Does your child argue a lot – with you or teachers? Does he or she seem to anger easily? Is this behaviour worrying you?
It could be quite normal – just a phase your child is going through. On the other hand they may have oppositional defiant disorder, also known as ODD.
There are five signs which can point to ODD, according to Dr Martha Burns. In a conversation on the Learning Capacity Podcast, she described the signs and discussed how to help a child who has this disorder.
