Reactive Attachment Disorder – Are you Frustrated?
Are you the parent or caregiver of a child diagnosed with Reactive Attachment Disorder? So am I and I know how you feel!
My name is Vee and I’m here to help. My daughter was diagnosed with RAD when she was only 6. Those were some tough years, and the one thing that I found was that only others who have been through this wild ride of RAD can truly understand what you are going through on a day to day basis.
So this site is designed for you – the primary caregiver of your precious, troubled child. I can help you sort through all of the difficult emotions that you experience, and offer you resources and encouragement. To get you started – I wrote this FREE guide – Reactive Attachment Disorder: The Ten Things you need to know to stay sane!
When my daughter was diagnosed with dis-inhibited reactive attachment disorder, I had no idea of what to really expect. If only I had know earlier what was really wrong with her perhaps I could have helped avoid some of the immense challenges we faced… at least – that is what I like to tell myself! It is really tough to say – and you can’t blame yourself for your child’s’ condition! Children with attachment problems exhibit such extreme behaviors that often the parent feels like the one who is crazy! The parent [usually the Mom - not always, but often], is the one who takes the brunt of the day to day craziness, and on top of it all ends up taking the brunt of the criticism and blame from well meaning family members and friends. The parent is the one who bears the guilt and confusion of why the necessary and critical attachment with the child has [seemingly] not occurred! Parenting these children can be a very lonely experience and you need people who have been through it and can empathize!
