Oppositional defiant disorder (ODD) is a childhood disorder that is defined by a pattern of hostile, disobedient, and defiant behaviors directed at adults or other authority figures. ODD is also characterized by children displaying angry and irritable moods, as well as argumentative and vindictive behaviors. Reactive attachment disorder is a condition in which a young child does not develop healthy attachments to his or her caregivers. It occurs most often in children who have not had a consistent, competent caregiver since birth, including children who have been abandoned or given up for adoption.
