Puberty and RAD

Puberty and RAD. Any advice out there?

Please don't say "run for cover!"

That's not working.

Thanks.

We are right in the middle of it. I am very fortunate that my dad has a good relationship with my son, and is willing to talk to him about "guy stuff". They only see each other once a month or so, so Grandpa never sees the RAD behavior. They talk mostly in the car on the way to do something fun, and I think that their talks are mostly my dad talking and my son held captive by his seatbelt, lol. I also found a book that I love called "It's Perfectly Normal." My son won't touch it and yells at me when I try to get it out. But I leave it in the playroom with the legos, which is a place he goes alone and I can't see him. I am hoping sometime he will look at it when he is alone. But most days running for cover still sounds like a good plan. I will definitely come back and see what other comments you get!

I have no advice, but I will be praying for you. I am dreading the puberty years in our home. :-(

Take good care of YOU. It is invaluable as puberty with a RADling can be extraordinarily difficult.
