Helping Boys with Oppositional Defiance Disorder
We can help your son with Oppositional Defiance Disorder, or ODD, a psychiatric disorder that can show itself in childhood, in which he exhibits challenging behaviors, constantly disobeying you and, to put it simply, is essentially in a horrible mood (particularly when around any authority figure).
While many teens display some of these behaviors at various times, if your boy is excessively defiant, deliberately disruptive or belligerent, irate or ill-tempered, continually in opposition with authority, spiteful, maybe even blaming others for his own mistakes, he might have ODD.
Agapé Boarding School – We Can Help Your Son With Oppositional Defiance Disorder
Left untreated, ODD is a very wearisome condition, both for you and your son. It is key to detect this Disorder correctly, in order to make certain that his behaviors do not exacerbate, possibly leading to troubles with powers that be, or being harmful to himself.
In addition to possibly having other, correctable conditions (i.e.: ADHD or depression), ODD can be a precursor to other, more difficult issues such as criminal behavior and self-destructive behavior.
Useful behavioral therapy might concentrate on how to avert problematic thoughts or behaviors from inadvertently being strengthened. Instead, use of positive reinforcement and praise for suitable behaviors are basics in successful care.
What Makes Agapé Boarding School the Right Place for Your Son with Oppositional Defiance Disorder?
An affordable, fully accredited, high quality Christian boarding school for teen boys who are struggling, Agapé Boarding School specializes in working with rebellious, angry, know-it-all young men who are out of control. Has your son become lazy, with no accountability? Found the wrong crowd or been swayed into misbehavior drug or alcohol usage
Our sprawling campus with first-class sports facilities and hundreds of animals is designed specifically for adolescent boys 12-17 who are taking the wrong track in life; Agapé works just with defiant and difficult boys, so we know how to handle your son.
Our approach at Agapé is loving, but disciplined, with 24/7 watchful care over your troubled boy. Agapé, Greek for “God’s unconditional love” – is what we’ll show your boy as he struggles with behavior problems that are threatening his future. He’ll see God’s love daily, since spiritual growth leads to positive growth in every facet of life.
If you’ve tried short-term programs or hospital stays but to no lasting effect, and he refuses the idea of change, interventions away from home – such as a residential program like Agapé Boarding School — may be the answer for your boy.
If your son has been labeled a misfit or failure, we are here to offer a fresh start so that he may be productive in life, in whatever career path of his choosing, whether higher education, a trade or the military. Agapé will give him the tools for a bright future, so he will be a productive member of society.
