I went for coffee this morning with a friend who has also adopted 2 girls with RAD. We have met for years about once a week and vent, share and encourage each other in ways other people cannot. I arrived home to find that Taz and Bear were in the backyard screaming and yelling and that Bear had punched Taz in the face. Taz ran in the house and locked Bear out which is actually understandable considering he was trying to hurt him. I'm sure our neighbors enjoyed the show. I'm thinking we should sell popcorn at the next showing and possibly ring side seats.
Seriously though I am concerned. Bear has counseling tomorrow and we need to talk about Bears increasing aggression. I went to the Y and took both of them with me and kept them in separate rooms. When I leave for school I will drop Bear off at the library to make sure he is separated from Taz.
There have been a lot of talks about how to handle anger. What to do when you feel things are unfair. There have also been talks about the money which is still missing. It is obvious that one is acting out because of guilt. The other is acting out at being suspected. But which is which?
I was having my quiet time this morning and came across this verse.
"Our sufficiency is from God." 2 Cor. 3:5. He will give us the strength and the wisdom we need in knowing how to handle this situation and in knowing when to seek out further services.
