I have a 3-year-old RADlet. I was told they were going home today, but the judge said otherwise. We could have them only another week or so, but the SW seems to thing they will be here for many more months.
I have NO IDEA what I am doing with him. Nothing I'm doing is working and things are only getting worse. The SWs either don't believe me that things are as bad as they are, or don't want to have to deal with it. So I'm on my own here. There is no one that will take him as a client being so young, so I have no help there either.
What I need is to either connect with another momma that is dealking with a child with RAD, or even just some really good books that can teach me more effective ways to deal with him. I won't disrupt the placement, but I also can't spend every of his waking minute pissed off or upset at something else he has done. It's gotten to the point that I feel I am failing his brother (the one he takes out his aggression and rages on). I can't ever let them be alone together. It's really hard when I'm alone with them most of the day and also have a 5-month-old to take care of.
I know this momma would appreciate any and all resources, support, and advice she can get right now, so please chime in with whatever you have! :-)
Thanks so much, ladies!!!
