difficult child just told me on the way home from the Dr. that she doesn't want to go into guidance to speak with her counselor because the secretary is mean and doesn't like her. I told her I thought she was just getting worked up over nothing. So difficult child said "NO MOM she was saying mean things about me when you went with G.C. to talk to school psychiatric about classes." difficult child proceeds to tell me that the secretary didn't know difficult child was in the conference room and was talking about difficult child to another teacher and difficult child heard her. She told someone that my difficult child had ruined the guidance counselors day, and she can't stand when [arents come in to whine about their kids problems. I am going to go into school and have a nice little chat with this woman. She now has my anxiety riddled daughter afraid to go to the one place she felt safe to go to. Why do people like this even work in the school system. Time to send out the emails to the guidance counselor and administration.
