The Prisoners of War
POWs, MIAs, and other silent victims of RAD and other emotional and relational disorders.  

Yes, moms are the primary targets and almost always the most affected by RAD living.  But, they are not the only ones suffering... Husbands are often neglected due to all the extra energy demanded by the troubled children... The siblings, and other children in the family are often victimized by the troubled children, as well as, left to fend for themselves.   Even though the parents would willingly and lovingly give the normal children the attention they need and desire, the troubled children rob, steal, or demand it all, creating crisis after crisis.

I also believe that our friends and extended family members, as well as teachers, therapists, etc. are also victims in this war.  Because our children are incredibly good at what they do, these people are often left to live with the lie.  So many have become critical and angry with no hope for reconciliation and understanding.  Because to get it, they would have to believe what they cannot see...

What About the Siblings?

Complications in Friendships
Are you brokenhearted over losing friends?

  • For You- There's only one true friend, tried and true who died for you
-Effects on NON-RAD SIbling's in the Home
Sometimes, we just need a break... to regroup ... to re-energize... to find that place we need to be in order to love our kids better... Here is a LINK that helps you deal with the issue of respite for your child...
...When we have serious problems going on in our families, we cannot follow the world's rules on making and keeping friends.  Society has come to accept and embrace families dealing with physical and other obvious handicaps, but take a child who appears normal in every way and convince someone of the nightmare we live in on a daily basis..... or be going through a divorce....or trying to blend a family when there are old friends, visitation rights, extended ex-family members..... Things can be a little tougher whether you are the sufferer or the one trying to be a good friend.
