I am the mother of 2 daughters, one each by birth and adoption. By necessity, I tried to learn everything I could about Reactive Attachment Disorder and I think I did more research than the FBI and CIA combined. What I found was a lot of general information and outdated studies but no answers to my desperate questions. I had to figure out "why", what thinking process was going into my daughters unimaginable behavior, in order to help her change.
As far as my personal interests, they are a full-blown stereotype! I love cats, reading, Fiesta ware, knitting, and reality tv.
Parenting an adopted child with Reactive Attachment Disorder (RAD) can be an immense struggle. The child's behavior is often incomprehensible, and traditional parenting seems to make it worse. This booklet explores the child's motivation while providing hints and tips to smooth the path.
