Well, in 25 minutes the rest of the kids will be out of school for the day. And what has been a quiet interlude for my youngest and I, will turn into a storm.
It seems that as soon as his siblings get home from school, a switch is flipped and he is determined to do anything in his power to get any attention that he can, doesn’t seem to matter if the attention is positive or negative.
The jury is still out on whether or not it is the Reactive Attachment Disorder that causes or enhances this behaviour. All I know is that it is very frustrating. I can see how frustrating for him it is. He and I have talked about it, and he is usually pretty good at explaining why he does some of the things that he does. But, he has no explanation for why he gets mean and vicious when they return home.
