I talked many times about the impact Reactive Attachment Disorder has on our family. Gavin was caught messing with Elliott’s head this morning.
When Gavin is in one of these situations and he’s messing with someone, he’s very careful not to get caught.
This morning was messing with Elliott and causing a great deal of confusion. It was nothing outwardly evil or anything like that. He was just pretending not to hear Elliott, knowing that Elliott was getting upset.
I realize that brothers mess with each other however, when one brother is a RAD kid, it’s a safe bet that the innocence of sibling teasing doesn’t apply.
Anyway, Gavin was a bit careless this morning and he was caught in the act.
Elliott is quite upset because he knows that Gavin was being mean to him and doesn’t understand why his big brother would do something like that to him.
I’ve sent Gavin to his room to read for a little while.
He’s said that he’s sorry but the truth is, he’s sorry that he got caught. This is classic RAD behavior and it’s not much fun.
