Nancy Thomas Parenting
We offer information on adoption, attachment and bonding issues, early trauma, and Reactive Attachment Disorder (RAD) to families and professionals. We are also the official home of Families by Design–providing educational materials and seminars.
The goal of this site is to provide help for each wounded child with Attachment Disorder, PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), and ODD (Oppositional Defiant Disorder)–to provide hope for each awesome parent and team member. Awesome parents are the ones who search everywhere, including the internet, looking for answers to help their children. The parenting techniques I teach have been honed on some of the most challenging children in the United States. Parents and professionals must adjust these tools to suit each child’s and each family’s needs. Join us for private consultations, camps, webinars, or seminars across the country.
Children with special needs do not succeed when parented as a ‘normal children’. They need special help. When parents, teachers, therapists, and respite providers join together, we can have a powerful team to help heal a hurting child! I hope you will find the answers you seek here in our humble offering of pages. I believe every child can learn to be respectful, responsible and fun to be with. And, that every home can be filled with love and laughter.
We can make a difference!
