My daughter

Told me recently that telling her she had a learning disability affected her whole school career. She’s 20 now. I told her because she didn’t understand why she needed tutoring for multiple subjects. But without tutoring she wouldn’t have passed school. In 5th grade we were still teaching her how to do basic subtraction in math. I was frank with her about it because she didn’t want to see a tutor. I hope she can forgive me for telling her. She still hugged me and told me she loves me afterward, but I just feel awful about it.

I would have done what you did if I had been in your position.

It sounds like you have a great relationship with your daughter though.

We’re very close. But I still feel really bad

Is she in school, now? Did your comment stop her?

You just did what had to be done. Hard to face, but worth it.

I hope she can move forward without too much emotional pain from it

You did right by her. One day she’ll thank you.
