Using "he/she" and "usted's" possessive pronoun in a sentence?

I have a sentence: > "Father, he was writing in your notebook." Wouldn't that translate into: > "Padre, el estaba escribiendo en su cuaderno." Wouldn't that be confusing because it could also read: > "Father, he was writing in his notebook." How would you differentiate the two?

He = El. She=Ella. Usted= Can be used for both femenine and masculine. It is used as a sign of respect. Usually used for people that are elder than you, or in a higher position, like a boss, a teacher, etc etc
