Tyler was re-diagnosed tonight. His new therapist (after reading his entire file and consulting with his previous therapists) have diagnosed him with Reactive Attachment Disorder. We have been reading up on this, and it fits Tyler perfectly.
Here’s the rub, we have to parent him differently. Sometimes….it’s going to get weird. So when DeAnn and I are working with Tyler, please don’t tell us we’re doing it wrong or question us afterwards… We know what we’re doing and we have a VERY short time to fix this (i.e. before puberty when his brain rewires itself). This is our only chance….
