Siblings with RAD
I come back to this now and then because it is SUCH an issue in our home. Our youngest has had some major strides in his attachment with me. He still has some RAD issues and regressions but is not the same person he was a year ago. Unless his brother walks in the room. He completely goes back to the RAD behaviors. They physically become aggressive. Their words are angry and hateful. They are jealous, petty and mean when they are together. They have a bond founded on trauma. It is like they are re traumatized when they are together. Nancy Thomas told me to keep them apart. I work hard to do this. They work hard to be together. Do any of you have siblings with RAD? Can you share your experience with this. Any insights? I would LOVE to hear them.
