If you haven’t already purchased TTT I have a different recommendation.
I’ve seen my nieces using ”Parenting with Love & Logic” by Foster Cline, Jim Fay with their children and I’m very impressed. One of my nieces had a very defiant child, so defiant that no one wanted to be around this child, and certainly no one would baby-sit this incorrigible child. The mom was constantly getting calls from the teacher and was at her wits end of what to do.
I’ve since seen my niece completely turn her child’s behavior around by using Love & Logic. I never would have thought that child had a chance until I saw it with my own eyes. She is now a delight to be around.
My niece explains that Love and Logic parenting teaches children to be responsible for their own behavior and teaches them from a young age to make choices in their best interest.
She first learned about it through some friends, and she bought the above-mentioned book. Later she found a Love & Logic parenting class/support group that met once a week for a couple of hours.
Here’s what they say at their website:
Love and Logic is a philosophy of raising and teaching children which allows adults to be happier, empowered, and more skilled in the interactions with children. Love allows children to grow through their mistakes. Logic allows children to live with the consequences of their choices. Love and Logic is a way of working with children that puts parents and teachers back in control, teaches children to be responsible, and prepares young people to live in the real world, with its many choices and consequences.
The concepts behind Love and Logic place a heavy emphasis on respect and dignity for children and at the same time allows parents to grasp simple approaches instead of learning difficult counseling procedures.
They do have materials specific for ODD:
We recommend the following products for helping children with special needs:

anyways…I know this sounds like an ad, but I have no part in it, I don’t even have one of their books, I’ve just observed how well it’s worked in my own family and now highly recommend it, plus you can do it for the cost of a book.
