This blog is my place to vent and share resources with other parents of children of trauma. I try to be open and honest about my feelings in order to help others know they are not alone. Therapeutic parenting of adopted teenagers with RAD and other severe mental illnesses and issues (plus "neurotypical" teens) , is not easy, and there are time when I say what I feel... at the moment. We're all human!

RADical Webinar

If I can find some people willing to split the cost I am definitely doing this!

Katharine Leslie is going to be doing a webinar!

May 18th. 10 AM to 11:30 AM CST.


Grab all your fellow Radical mom’s, invite them over for tea and split the cost. Continuing education credits will be issued if you need/want them.

Dr. Leslie presents at Attach every year and gets rave reviews. Also a parent to radicals. She doesn’t just “get it”, she lives it.

Parenting from the Trenches
Do you have a child who lies, steals, sneaks, stalks, hordes, chatters non-stop, or urinates in places other than the potty, etc?
