Mistake 2 : No problem (when there is one)
The second type of mistake reverses the first.
Second, you might react as though something is not a problem when it is.
For example, parents of an adolescent may fail to realize their daughter has been concealing a worsening drug addiction. During the day she secludes herself in her room. At night she goes out with friends and returns after her parents are asleep. Another parent overlooks the abusive language and violent outbursts of his ten year old.
So in our Journal example, if you continued to read your newspaper and ignore your son's biting, would you be making this second type of mistake?
