RAD - reactive attachment disorder
My DS is 8yrs old and has a traumatic history. I believe he has RAD and am trying to get him into therapy for a correct diagnosis.
Has anyone else adopted a child who has an attachment disorder? How were you able to effectively parent the child in the way that feels natural to you? What books did you read or parenting methods did you try?
I am loosing my mind parenting this little boy. He is a good kid, but he lies, steals, has negative responses to rewards and punishments, is manipulative, defiant etc etc.
