Can I find out what my child talks about with the counselor?
If your child comes to meet with a counselor, please respect their privacy and right to confidentiality by NOT asking what they said to a counselor. You can ask if they have spoken with the counselor, but your child needs to know that they can talk honestly about what's going on in their lives and no one will pressure them to share. Giving children an opportunity to speak to an adult privately empowers them and validates their feelings. Know that a counselor will let you know immediately if they think your child is in any danger or if they think there's something you could do directly to help your child.
