Oppositional defiant disorder
Nature: The disorder usually appears before puberty and features frequent negativistic, hostile and defiant behaviour. The children lose very often their temper, swear, annoy other people deliberately and refuse adult requests. They also have a tendency to blame others for their mistakes and justify their behaviour as a response to unreasonable circumstances.
Problem Type: E: Emanations of other problems
