I think I have read probably every single book, blog and scribble note ever written on RAD by other trauma parents or at least it feels that way with all the sleepless nights I spend searching the endless internet suggestions and best ways to parent your child with RAD links…Most have helped me in some way or another. Some give me a sense of, YES, see, I am not crazy. Other books or blogs give me tools to parent my guy better. But most if not all that I have read from actual parents in the trenches have helped. So to all you bloggers, Authors and Facebook posters, THANK YOU, from one trauma Momma to another.
While talking about books, I have one that if you haven’t read, and you know, teach or are raising a child with complex trauma and attachment issue, run, I mean that, run and get this book today. It’s called, Upside down, Understanding and Supporting attachment in adoptive families by Shannon Guerra. IT. IS. SO. GOOD. Since you just ran to buy one go a head and buy an extra few and give it to people in your circle, a book like this is what the world needs to be educated on attachment issue and the struggles we go through in trying to help our children heal.
