@dlowan,

You know what really stands out for me in all this is the clear fact that Mo is really developing reflective capacity big time. He can't always access it quickly and has the big meltdowns, but look at the number of times when you've talked about him processing things, considering his best approach (which I thought was a very emotionally literate one....better than many adults) and stuff like that.

We've talked before about what a hugely positive sign that is, I think?


Mo "reads" people very, very, well. He seems to understand the importance of taking the temperature of a situation before acting/reacting. He feels things out very carefully.

Sometimes it drives me crazy because we have to wait for him to do that -- and it can take a long time.

So I guess it's hugely positive but I hope for his own sake/safety that he learns to process things a bit quicker, while still coming to the right conclusion.

Why not? He did have a brain as big as a planet, didn't he?
Like Einstein, he did not fare well in the early years of school.
He was taken for a moron, until some years later,
he was found out when his class took an intelligence test.

He said that his teacher got mad n called him names!

Speaking of rock: Does Mo still have the drum kit he showed me? This seems like a good occasion to make some noise.

@boomerang,
Awesome - sounds like Mo took the high road and when you do you usually end up better off. The thing is - if you take the high road the other person that doesn't usually ends up showing their true colors. Mo gave Paul the opportunity too fess up without him looking bad - just normal - this shows that Mo was not being oversensitive at all.

I'll glad for Mo - and hopefully for Mo and even for Paul - Paul will learn how to deal with this and take ownership - it actually will help Paul as much as Mo.

Oh good! Thanks for the update and glad that Paul revealed himself. Go Mo!

Hope this makes a lasting impression on the teacher too, more generally.

@sozobe,
One other thing - I do say a big congrats to the teacher - she did take some humble pie and apoligze. I do give her credit for recognizing her error.

I do, and I bet all of the other older members do as well. Smile

Did you know he became a cop? I guess you probably did. (His real name was Ken Osmond, by the way.)
