So my daughter is doing pretty well in school. One issue, and it's a biggie in relation to functioning in life, is that she just doesn't accept authority.
She doesn't yell, or really argue, it's more the quiet disagreeing with teachers. The teacher assistant for the class mentioned today if we could just get her to accept what we say goes that would be great.
Oh God, my life would be easier too, but it's not easy. I know it comes across as disrespectful and we are working on it. Add in her crazy high IQ and the fact sometimes she corrects the teachers and is right, like when the teacher said butterflies hatch from cocoons, lol, etc. I mean, she does it to me. The newest thing is to repeat herself slowly and ask if I understand. It's funny but pretty insulting, even though I know there is no malice.
I think forward to a police officer asking her to put her hands up, etc, and not complying. It gives me heart palpitations. Is it just rote memory on authority figures we must do, because I can't seem to get through any other way. Any suggestions?
