Attachment Tuesday: Big Feelings

Attachment Challenged kiddos are often drowning in big feelings.  Big feelings lead to big behaviors.  Big behaviors, well hopefully, they lead the parents to Big Patience.

I am trying to change my focus from what a pain in the rear it is to have a RAD child, to an attitude of thankfulness.  Not thankful that she has RAD, but thankful that I have the ability to learn and grow throw it.

If you choose to read this article on Big Feelings - think about, how often we adults react to our own Big Feelings, instead of processing them with mindfulness.  This helps me have a tiny bit more compassion for the RAD kiddo.
