You’re not alone and you’re not a failure.

Your child fights against every form of authority and appears to have no control over his own choices, impulses or behavior. You’ve tried the full gamut of parenting approaches and nothing works. The problem is, those programs are for typical kids, not kids with ODD. Through Kim’s personal experience, and even humor, you can get to what works with your Opposition Defiant child.

Stop the chaos that’s ruling your life.

  • End the never-ending control battles
  • Stop repetitive, violent and severe blowouts
  • Get cooperation from your child’s school
  • Have influence over the most resistant child
  • Feel empowered instead of defeated

In this program, you’ll learn:

  • The fail-proof consequence: what it is and how to use it
  • The 4-step approach that works with the ODD child or teen
  • Ways to get your child to think about choices and make better ones
  • How to hold your child accountable so you don’t end up paying the price for his or her choices
  • The secret to making consequences work
  • How to deal effectively with school, police and court systems
  • How to recover from the emotional exhaustion of parenting an ODD child
