Online Parent Support Group Chat: 11/25 - 12/5

Australia Thu 23:15 Hi Mark, I suppose what I'm really asking is at what point should we go and get our under age daughter and bring her home or is that the wrong strategy - should we wait for her to return - we are feeling pretty out of control at this point? Thanks I'm in need of specific actions please.

Mark Fri 8:39 Try to get word to her that she is welcome to come home - but that there will be a house-rules contract she'll need to sign-off on.

How can I communicate with my teenager?

Mark Mon 9:12 To User 325: I've responded to your inquiry here ==>

Julie Kennedy, Psy.D. Mon 9:14 Your older teenager or young “adult child” isn’t sure what to do, and he is asking you for money every few days. How do you cut the purse strings and teach him to be independent? If you have an older Aspergers teenager who has no clue where he is going in life, or if you have an adult Aspergers child still living at home (in his early 20s or beyond), then this will be the most important letter you will ever read...

User 202 Tue 11:00 My child was recently diagnosed with ODD and ADHD... do you have any suggestions on what I can do as his mother?

David McLaughlin, MD Tue 11:01 ODD is a psychiatric disorder that is characterized by two different sets of problems. These are aggressiveness and a tendency to purposefully bother and irritate others. It is often the reason that people seek treatment. When ODD is present with ADHD, depression, tourette's, anxiety disorders, or other neuropsychiatric disorders, it makes life with that child far more difficult. For Example, ADHD plus ODD is much worse than ADHD alone, often enough to make people seek treatment.

delisa hall Sat 21:03 hi mark I was wondering if you could tell me if psychotherapy is an effective method for treating ODD? also about how many children have been successfully treated with the usage of psychotherapy? when were noticeable changes made( after how many sessions) also was the treatment more effective when parents were a part of the treatment process( they were involved in therapy as well)? what types of changes are made when psychotherapy is used( attitude, grades, communication, etc..)? thank you!

delisa hall Sat 21:07 how many sessions of psychotherapy do most children need before measured success can be obtained

delisa hall Sat 21:09 how do teachers play a role in the picture to yield effectiveness and success?

ShellyinOC Sun 3:57 My daughter got a tattoo without me knowing & she is being very disrespectful to me in the way she talks to me. I'm a single mom (newly divorced) & she is currently in online schooling due to her having some major issues in public school last year. She lives with her grandma during the week, so she can be with her during the day since I work full time. She comes home during the weekends & I see her every Wednesday night. I don't know what to do with her...?

ShellyinOC Sun 4:01 I know she wants to be back home with me, but she is consistently showing me she's irresponsible (tattoo, poor grades)...if I let her back home, she would think that she's "won" in the situation. I can allow her back into a public school, but I have a feeling the same issues will happen all over again. Should I just let her come back home, and basically just let her "live her life" and not worry about it, or should I put even more restrictions on her because of her recent behavior?

User 358 Sun 6:27 Hi, I have a son (19) who has a recent girlfriend and has begun staying out all night. I asked him yesterday before he left NOT to stay out all night tonight. Well... yet, again, he is still not home and this time did not leave me a message/call to let me know. I am at a loss at to what natural consequence/punishment I should use for him. Any ideas? Thank you!

Mark Sun 13:55 To delisa: Here's info on ODD ==>

Mark Sun 13:57 To Shelly: I would have her come back home ...the two of you start over using the strategies outlined in the "My Out-of-Control Teen" eBook, which you can download here ==>
