Coaching kids with ODD or ADD
« on: April 25, 2018, 08:50:34 AM »
Anyone have any tips for coaching kids with ODD or ADD? ADD is pretty easy to deal with but ODD is a nightmare. My son has ODD and has pretty much prevented me from coaching him up to this point. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
