When your daily activities are in concert with your highest priorities, you have a credible claim to inner peace. – Hyrum Smith

ODD

When I was a counselor at a juvenile detention center in Florida, I encountered many kiddos with ODD (Oppositional Defiant Disorder). I have forgotten the exact criteria for the disorder, but I seem to recall there can be an "early onset." I am beginning to wonder just how early one can be diagnosed...

We were driving in the van. Parker was being - you guessed it - oppositional. My husband, Aaron, who is typically a very patient man, erupted. "Enough, Parker! I'm not going to argue with you about it anymore!"

(thoughtful pause)

"Mommy, will you argue with me?"
