Reasons Why

  • Here are some reasons a student may want to see the counselor:

    • “The same person keeps picking on me and I don’t know what to do about it.”
    • "My best friend is ignoring me and found someone else to hang out with. I don't know what I did wrong and it's making me feel sad.”
    • “I’m new to this school and I’m very nervous.”
    • “My pet died over the weekend and I am sad.”
    • “I just want to talk to someone who will not laugh at me.”
    • “I auditioned for a part in the school play and I made it. I’m so excited to tell someone.”
    • “Mike, Jim, and I had a problem at recess. We need to set up a mediation to work it out?”

    Here are some reasons a parent might want to talk to the counselor:

    • “My husband and I are getting divorced and we think our kids could benefit from talking about it with other kids. Is there a Changing Family group this year?”
    • “David just doesn’t want to go to school in the mornings.”
    • “We recently had a death in the family, and I’m not sure how to tell my child.”
    • “Jennifer is having difficulty concentrating in the classroom.”
    • “Linda is really frustrated doing her homework, and nothing I say seems to help.”
    • “I just want to thank you for asking my daughter to be in the Friendship group. She really enjoyed meeting other kids at Big Creek."
