If you have a young child do not put off professional treatment for RAD. It does not age well. The older the child becomes the longer the brain has had to work on the incorrect thinking and the harder it becomes to change the brain works. We ALMOST had attachment therapy when our kids were little. I was in touch with one over the phone and was working on it but she was not returning calls and I gave up. If I knew then what I know now I would have been much more persistent. MUCH MORE. Now we have one teen with RAD and one with a weak attachment and possible other mental health issues thrown in. What a life. It is hard to keep teens with RAD busy and it is very hard not to let them disrupt the entire family. Taz has been a screaming yelling mess this morning. Laughing hysterically at every ones discomfort. I have been calm so far. He has done a lot of jumping jacks, a few at a time. I finally had him come kneel next to me and I hugged him and prayed about his fear. Of course, he said he doesn't have any but I told him that good moms can tell. It is OK to be a 14 year old boy and be afraid. I told him about our outing this afternoon to the library and then to a park/monument activity this afternoon. I hope he can go with us. We will be going either way. He may be sitting at dad's office in a chair while we are gone. We will see what he chooses. Our morning schedule is chores, working out and studying. He must accomplish those to join in the afternoon's adventure! Have a healing day! Go into expecting a miracle!
