Learning Pause and This Blog:

Relearning Pause:

Hello there! I am Laurie and I want to share about a temporary direction shift to this blog. I am in the process of learning many new insights about Reactive Attachment Disorder (RAD) that seem to be working. These insights have caused me to go in a new direction in my approach to RAD as a Life Coach.

Most of the shift has to do with helping the adopted RAD child attach in meaningful ways. It is a very different parenting approach. It looks quite contrary to all we know about parenting. Healing the brain is at the root of the process.

So far, this blog is my story and my connection to help other adoptive parents in their search for answers to RAD. It will continue to be so. But for now, this blog will be taking a break. I will come back and communicate what I am learning through this different parenting approach. I will have more helpful information of how to bond to these troubled RAD children.

I don’t know how long of a break I am going to take. But, I do know sending these RAD children to their rooms as a punishment adds to their rejection and abandonment issues. Plus, taking their stuff away causes them to be on a war path to win over you at all cost. Usually the cost of the relationship between you and them. More on these issues when I come back from this break.

Blessings to you and your families in the interim pause for this blog. I will be back to share all I have learned. Until then…
