Misunderstandings

People love to interpret the behaviour of others and while doing so often mistakes are made and misunderstandings are created.

My daughter used to wait for her friends in one of the hallways of school.
Nothing wrong with that.

But a teacher saw her there and he concluded that she wasn't sitting with her classmates, standing alone....so she had no contact with her peers.

Misunderstandings like these have put us in the awkward position we're in: people telling us our daughter needs therapy for having no friends.

She has friends enough, and does all the things with them girls do at this age: shopping, parties, sleep overs...

I was shocked to hear her present teacher mentioning this, because that means he interprets behaviour without checking if his conclusions are right.

My daughter will speak with him about this.
