Momma H Posted February 6, 2012 Share Posted February 6, 2012 Ok, this is not a typical rant. My baby is just kind of awkward. I have wondered a long time about what is up with her and I just can't really tell. She is, and always has been immature for her age. She has some weird things she does like when she paints nails, she is really really sloppy. When she makes pictures (she loves to draw dresses) they are pretty childish looking compared to others her age. She was a late reader and had dyslexia and I thing auditory processing issues. Often, she will barge in to a conversation and not realize it. She does not catch a lot of things that others do. Her spelling is awful. She has always been a couple of years behind in school. She does not catch on to things. I think it has something to do with higher order thinking. And lately we have noticed she is embellishing stories. It is not that she is lying, she just likes to make things that happen to and around her sound funnier and more special than they really are. I have also noticed her being alone at church more. I think there is some glitch she has but I just can not put my finger on it. She has always just had some things about her that are off a little bit. Normally, no one else seemed to notice and she had lots of friends but I think her embellishing may be becoming a problem. I talked to her about it last night and she understood what I was saying. We are going to try and help her recognize what she is doing so she can knock it off but I just feel like something is glitching in her. I keep thinking she is going to blossom, that she will become mature in her time and things will click but so far it hasn't and it is hard to see it hurt her. Any thoughts? :confused: Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
