Parenting Other People’s Children: Understanding And Repairing Reactive Attachment Disorder

A book on reactive attachment disorder and more, in that it explores the underlying causes and includes help for children that might not be so badly damaged psychologically as to be classified as having reactive attachment disorder. The book will help any parent who is challenged with raising an oppositional defiant or “difficult” child. The reader will come away with the skill to understand: why trust is the main issue with RAD kids;  the inter-relationship between trust, love, and esteem; why the child is emotionally stunted; the rational behind various behavioral management techniques; why and when to use specific techniques; how to balance love and discipline, and the rational and need for both; the motivation behind the child’s behavior; and more.
