When he was six, he was put in an orphanage and, over the next few years, was bounced in and out of three different orphanages. His social skills and developmental abilities were sadly neglected. He is now almost 21 and wants to get along with his roommates and co-workers.
I have had this conversation many times, but I think now he really wants to know. I think he is teachable now. Skills I take for granted in communication, he doesn’t quite grasp.
