Oppositional Defiance Disorder in Adults
By Naima Manal, eHow Contributor
Oppositional Defiance Disorder (ODD) is classified as a mental disorder characterized by a persistent pattern of defiant, aggressive and disobedient behavior. In children, the rebellious behavior of ODD is directed towards authority, whether it be parents or teachers. If it's not cured or resolved, a child with ODD can later develop Conduct Disorder (CD) as an adult.
Children with ODD are four times more likely to develop a personality disorder in adulthood, such as Conduct Disorder or Anti-Social Personality Disorder, than children without ODD.
ODD may be caused by psychological, social and biological factors. A family history of ADHD, mood disorders and substance abuse can predispose one to ODD.
ODD in adults is characterized by a pattern of behavior that violates the basic human rights of others, as well as disobeying societal rules.
Adults with ODD/CD tend to have destructive personalities, including the inability to get along well with others and falling into trouble often. On the other hand, some may exhibit very reclusive and withdrawn personalities.

Can we say this is what an Obama govt creates, more dependency and more disorders the big govt can treat and diagnose so they have more people dependent on them. This is what happens also when big govt takes over as the parents of the children telling those parents they aren't able to handle or raise their kids or even teach them, These are the same liberals that coddle people that do wrong and say because they have problems they can't function. So the good liberals have to take care of them and make the taxpayers pay for all of it until they the sick people liberals created go crazy and kill.Time for tough love people. stop placing a disorder on people just because they act up. spare the rod spoil the child.

It isn't often that I agree with what you write but you are spot on with this.
People enable. They make excuses and believe the lies of the 'victim'. Those who get tired of putting up with the crap are punished and belittled.
Enough is enough

There are people out there who have serious mental issues and this is a serious mental health issue. If you have ever been around someone who has this, or is schizophrenic, you would understand. Severe cases of these disorders need constant supervision, medication, and a team of doctors. So when they don't get the help they need, that is when you hear of murders, rapes, and attacks. It isn't always the governments fault. These are problems that used to never be spoken of.
Not everyone is always out to cry victim and play the pity me role. There are seriously ill people out there and it isn't a reason to bitch about the president and what you hate about him or the other people you have to choose between to vote for this time.

It is true that most personality disorders are developed during childhood and do not spontaneously appear during adulthood. That is why parents need to be more vigilant and attentive in their children. There may be situations that can be prevented when there is proper adult supervision. http://www.zoloftsertralinebirthdefects.com
