I’m using a picture here to remind us of the innocence of a baby, and how they are dependent on someone for every need. This little girl has loving interaction and her needs are met.
Many children with Reactive Attachment Disorder didn’t have those basic needs met.
In Lilly’s case, she wasn’t fed regularly, changed, or even in the same building as caregivers at times. We were told that she had been left for three days by herself at age one. Is there any wonder that she had an unfathomable rage? Children have a right to be cared for and nurtured!
I want people to “get it” with the RAD kids, and keep on loving them even when they push you away. 😥 -Nealie
