Question for Parents and Professionals about Attachment
A question from a parent:
As a fairly new adoptive parent (and parent of several birth children), I have been reading some information about parenting children with Reactive Attachment Disorder. The "love-based approaches" seem to make sense to me, but not consequencing a kiddo for naughty, anger provoking behavior is proving a tough change for me... I feel like I am reinforcing bad behavior.
How does an adoptive parent find a balance between focusing on attachment/loving the child and holding them accountable for their actions?
Has anyone had experience with the therapists at http://www.beyondconsequences.com/ or read their book?
