Reactive Attachment Disorder Mama – Don’t Judge

Reactive Attachment Disorder MamaHi all –

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

It is an ongoing educating process on that our kids aren’t just brats, have bad manners, or rule the roost. See, parenting of a Reactive Attachment Disorder kid looks way different than parenting say a normal child or teen. (Does that phrase even apply to teens?!) Anger, timeouts, scolding, yelling,  negative consequences don’t cut it. In fact, (education alert) it is what kiddo wants as they feel unlovable as it is and ultimately it makes them sicker and less attached.

One other thing here, this disorder isolates families all on its own. Judgement of others adds to that isolation.

I found this video on my FB (shockingly from another Reactive Attachment Disorder mama). Have a watch!

The moral of the story: you might not know the whole story. And when judgement rears its ugly head towards us Reactive Attachment Disorder mamas, replace it with a hug. We never get enough of those.
