Q: What is a "hallmark" of RAD, the core symptom of this disorder? Are there some symptoms that are more important than others?
 
A:The core symptoms of RAD are distorted relationships, constant control fights, being superficially engaging/charming outside the family and mean/hostile inside the family, and asocial tendencies (lying, stealing, destroying). It depends on the type of RAD, but what seems to be common to all types is the control issue. The tricky part is that control issues can manifest themselves in many different ways and even change over time in the same child.
