Parents of ADHD Preteens

ODD Symptoms of Lying

My 11 yr old stepson was diagnosed with both ADHD and ODD at age 5. Since then his parents have divorced and I have joined his family by marrying his father 2 years ago after 2 years of dating. Recently, in the past year, the lying and stealing has escalated astronomically. Most recently, he has accused me of physically assaulting him and convincing his biologigal mother to take a protective order out on me. Given his expertise on lying, he has convince a judge that I really harmed him when indeed I did not. Has anyone else experienced anything like this and how do my husband and I move on now and try to still be active in my stepson’s life without endangering my freedom?
