To put an end to the suspense, the play date went well. The girls even did their homework together before I picked her up later in the afternoon. But in the days since, K’s been acting up at home and she’s had some minor issues at school like writing on her shoes during class, etc.

She’s also almost completely stopped doing the excercises that Moshe Elbaum gave her to do on a daily basis. I’m wondering how much having stopped them is causing the apparent backsliding in her behavior.

I’ll need to reread the chapter in Elbaum’s book, “Intelligence-Integration” on overcoming resistance to training. The book is an amazing resource with step by step instructions on how to do all the exercises he’s developed for various learning and development problems faced by both children and adults. I highly recommend his book.
