Oppositional Defiant Disorder is term given to describe when a child displays a certain pattern of behaviours that includes losing their temper frequently, defying adults, being easily annoyed and deliberately annoying others.
The key elements displayed by children with ODD include the following characteristic:
Pathological Demand avoidance covers a range of features. The most distinctive of these, are the one from which the condition takes its name, is an overriding compulsion to control situations and avoid demands made by other people, due to exceptionally high levels of anxiety
In essence these children display a "counter-will" against authority especially when frustrated or stressed. They are often completely inflexible in these situations and the more pressure which is applied to make them conform, the greater the opposition
