Raising children is interesting isn’t it? Every day, something new comes up so that on the job training is the norm.

Parenting RAD Teens

RAD Teen

This journey of parenting RAD teens makes me feel like I am groping along blindly in a black tunnel. The statistics are not encouraging either – over age 13 the success rate drops dramatically in healing these kiddos. Notice most camps are only up to age 12? After the hormones kick in, you start facing […]

Healing Trust

This morning our RAD kid decided he wasn’t going to school. We’ve struggled with this before, and now Nancy Thomas has given us the answer. At least it worked this time! I think it’s a great technique for Oppositional Defiant Disorder kiddos too. It should work for any kid that wants to have control. The […]

Why RAD kids shouldn’t have individual counseling

One of the biggest mistakes parents make is to send their Reactive Attachment Disorder child to individual counseling. We went down that road, and it’s not a good thing for them. It actually makes them sicker, not better. But how can that be true? Isn’t counseling good for any emotionally disturbed child? Well, the answer […]
