Renata Souto wanted to lift her 6-year-old daughter's spirits after the little girl had been unwell for several days. So, Renata asked her daughter, Suzana, which friend she would like to invite over for a sleepover. Suzana replied that she had already talked to a friend about coming over. Renata was surprised by this but asked her daughter for the contact details of her friend's parents so she could get permission. Showing confusion, Suzana replied: "But why? Does Mrs. Dona Ju still have to ask for her parents' permission to go to a sleepover? Even if she's old?". Then, the penny dropped - Suzana's mother had never expected her daughter to invite Dona Ju, a 68-year-old woman, for a sleepover.
