The silent treatment tactic apparently is just how she deals with conflict. What a waste… a week lost over a misunderstanding, when a little conversation could have fixed it immediately. JM even asked her numerous times what the real problem was because she couldn’t believe all this drama was over a hypothetical pet.
While I still wouldn’t call them friends, I think they can at least begin to heal the roommate relationship. I do know that Saturday morning JM called spitting mad and wanting to transfer from her room. Now, we won’t have to move her. I’m very thankful for that.
I am proud that JM, with minimal advice from me and her dad, handled the situation herself. There were ways she says now she could have dealt with her roommate drama differently, but it was all a good learning experience for her.
Until next time...
