Reactive Attachment Disorder Mama – Don’t Judge

Hi all – One problem we mamas of Reactive Attachment Disorder kids have is the judgement of others who do not know of where we come.

My son came home from school heartbroken today – his girlfriend broke up with him (via a friend based on what something another boy said supposedly!). He was crying buckets which was hard enough.
