I sometimes worry about my DD's critical thinking skills. I know DD is very smart, she just has a problem thinking on her own. If you tell her xyz she will most likely remember it. (Unless your telling her to do a chore. Then she has tunnel vision) But if you tell her zy and wait for her to come to the conclusion of z, well thats that problem. She doesn't think things through to a logical end. She's 8 yrs old so not sure if I should worry about it, talk to her teacher about it, or even her doctor. Yesterday we had to explain 5 times about the options on her school picture packet. She thought you had to pay for every pose. When we said there are choices of how many pictures to buy, she didn't get it. She had some idea in her mind that you paid for a pose and it was $21 dollars and thats that. She wouldn't think it through after we told her she was wrong.
My 9 yrs old SD is some what like that she is just very strong minded she is just plain out in never never land. If you tell her to go clean up her room and make her bed she will come back in 20 minutes and say "i put all my dirty clothes in the hamper I'm done". Then you go in her room and her room looks twice as bad as it did when you sent her in there and he bed isn't made. She plays dumb A LOT. I thought it was just the age but know I am beginning to think that her understanding and comphetion skills need to be worked on. School will be testing her in a few weeks and then we have a doctors appt to get some testing done also.
