What do bears have to do with RAD? I'm going to have Bears represent anger. My boys are so full of rage about the things they went through as babies. They want to fight. They want to fight anyone who tries to love them. Mostly me. We had one dog that was a fear biter. She was from the animal shelter. Well, almost all of our pets have been from the animal shelter and we have had some excellent animals. But this particular dog feared strangers so much. She would snap at them. A and R fear mom's so much they have much the same reaction. Love hurts. Love causes pain if you give it and they leave you. So don't love. Yesterday A was in a fight at school and is suspended for today. His anger spills over. I am a bear too. I am the mama bear that will fight for her children until the end. I will continue to search for answers for them and do what it takes until they trust and feel safe. I will not give up.
