Help for Families Parenting Seriously RAD
(and other diagnoses) Kiddos:
  • Families by Design, Nancy Thomas with Attachment Parenting. Tons of helpful info for MAJORLY challenging kids (RAD, ODD, Bipolar, Tourette's, ADHD, etc.). Life-saving help and encouragement for those who are seriously considering disrupting an adoption!
  • Institute of Child Development at TCU (Dr. Karyn Purvis), Lots of info for help with "challenging" kids
  • The Connected Child (book by Dr. Karyn Purvis), This is THE BEST adoption book out there and it will help you understand your child's actions.  It's not the child; it's their history that they had no control over.  They didn't choose to be abused, neglected, abandoned.  Help them heal.
