    The show Parenthood on NBC is doing an arc on reactive attachment disorder. A family is in the process of adopting a 10 year old boy. They are handling it well, but it is really hard to capture the true affect on the family and how dark a Reactive Attachment Disorder (RAD) kid can be.

    FYI, today was our family's Independence Day. Our difficult child 1 turned 18. Yippee!

    It's fixed in the thread, but the title on the forum is still whacky. Maybe a mod can do it.

    I love Parenthood. It is such a wonderful look into what a family is sorta really like. Not the Perfect TV family we always see. This family is chock full of difficult child's.
