RAD-Kid Diaries

Books and Stories for our Kids....

  • Don't Touch My Heart....about a boy with attachment disorder                                   
This is Dr. Post from OK.....He has had huge success working with our kids...
From their perspective...

  • Why I Hate Her....she thinks I'm trying to get people to hate her... so she will try and turn the tables
  • Run....Why do they run away?
  • I Am a Good Girl!!.....she convinces herself that the real her is who she shows everyone...so she doesn't feel guilty about how she acts at home.
  • I Can Do It Myself....she pushes away...take care of yourself because everyone else has let you down
  • Can You See My Pain...her pain is invisible so she has to create "abuse" and "bruises" so others will react to what the real pain is from the past

Dealing with Sexual Abuse...

  • Together Forever...A mock conversation between a grown woman and the child she once was
  • Confessions....sometimes it's real hard to listen to the details as our child remembers
Based upon hours and hours of conversing with my RAD kids, and many hours and thousands of dollars in therapy... This has been my impression of how my kids view life and why they fight their families so...
