Teaser Tuesdays: Unwritten Rules of Social Relationships
Posted May 10 2011 1:57pm
Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading . Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
* Grab your current read
* Open to a random page
* Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
* BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS!
* Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists!
I have just started this book, so the quote is from what is titled as Act One, Scene One, which is the chapter expressing Temple’s perspective on social thinking:
Sometimes the impediment to a child developing social skills lies as much with the perspectives of the adult trying to teach the child as it does with the innate lack of social sense the child brings to the interaction…. Admitting that their child may never develop the emotional relatedness of a neurotypical person feels more like failure than it does acknowledging simply “another way of being.”
I am really looking forward to getting into the actual rules (of which they have ten).
