Today, Lotte has been with a friend from school almost the entire day.. Away from our house..
It went well. She's been with friends before, but never this long. At the end of the day she was tired...
And that's no surprise.
Think of it.. In a situation with many children, it is easy for her to camouflage that she doesn't understand. She watches the other children and whatever she hasn't understood will be filled in by the action of other children.
Playing 1 on 1 - like today - changes that completely. Any communication from her friend is towards her. So, Lotte will have to be more alert. Will have to focus if she doesn't want to ask too often to have a question repeated.
Apparently, it went very well. They played for a very long time, and at the end of the day they were still friends.
Lotte' s mum called the girl's house, and got the girl on the phone.
On my wife's question as to how it was going, the girl said "It is going very well. But we did fight a bit just now, but that is over now.."
