Another one of the pesky social skills. Saying “goodbye” when you leave the house. Fairly important, both now and as an employable skill.
Often I am busy frantically trying to get out the door by 7:00am, the coming and going of the bus is a blur. It would be great, in the social world, to have a “bye Mom”, but in the functional world, EVEN better.
I can get past a lot of the social skills that seem really pointless. However, I envision a job someday and the task being done, the shift being over and her just walking out, without that final farewell, completion.
Of course I will stand in her way, remind her that she should tell me something, but at the moment her bus is waiting—not such a good idea. The focus is the bus, not humoring Mom.
I created a visual for the font door. It says–When I leave the house I can say: bye, see ya, I am leaving, I am outta here, or love you(ha).
Of course, I should have asked what she might WANT to say, but I think I may have heard something really not nice….
