i have a friend who, for the most part, i can be pretty honest with. i believe there is something mentally wrong with her son. she can see things when other people's children have a behavioral issue or a mental problem but she doesn't seem to see it in her own child. this child is 5 years old, has very little idea how to play on his own, u can't understand about 95 % of what he says, he will randomly say a word or 2 but it is hard to understand what he means. simple directions or questions like turn around, behind u, pick that up, over there, count, saying the ABC's he will just stand there and look at u like u spoke 10 languages at the same time or he will say what a hundred times, or ok, or just repeat what u said and still not do it.
how do i get her to see this without making her hate me for the rest of my life? i have tried to talk to her but she just seems to brush me off or ignores anything i say. any ideas? anyone?
