I'm really sorry to hear you're having these difficulties, having raised a child with ODD, solitary-aggressive type. To say it was difficult is the understatement of the century.

The diagnostic criteria can be found here:

I'm not normally one to automatically refer a psychologist. But ODD can only be diagnosed by a mental health professional, and their help is often necessary, as ODD over time can completely erode family relationships. The solitary aggressive type can be a danger to themselves and family members. I'm not trying to be alarmist, but please do seek a diagnosis and help from a trained professional.

I wish you and your child the best possible outcome!
