Two part question Difficult Child is close to thirty, a little above avg in intellect, graduated from special needs HS due to mood swings 1. re Lack of any common sense Our difficult child puts me on speaker phone but I have no idea she's done this. She rarely does this, but when she does, she never tells me. The other day she put me on S.Ph. And I asked her a semi sensitive question. She went ballistic. I tell her esp if she is with people she should either not put it on S. Ph. or at least tell the person. She finally "got it" but was very mad. I think I'm seeing lack of common sense run rampant here. Am I right? Any theories as to why intellect doesn't correlate to common sense? 2. Re amnesia Difficult Child was a complete creep to her father. He was holding some food money for her and she wanted it for fast food and cigarettes. He was trying to convince her to go to the food store and get food and he would loan her money for cigs. We've been desperately trying to teach her to plan out her food money. She was rude and went ballistic. Next day, she acts like all is well and they are best buds. No mention. No apology. No bitterness. No tension. All is well. As if it never happened. We've seen this many times. Does your Difficult Child do this? Thoughts?
