  •  I think you're right. (18+ / 0-)

    I thought she was always trying to prove how progressive and accepting she is. She wants to be the young, hip counselor that all the kids love.

    There were times that I felt she was being competive with me over my daughter. She actually undermined me when I told Kgirl that she couldn't do something -- she said to Kgirl "Why don't you tell your mom that we can compromise..." I was sitting right there! "Thanks, but I can handle this. No. Just no. No compromise."

    •  Sounds like that counselor really needs (12+ / 0-)

      a refresher course.  That or she has never had proper training to be able to do the job.  You're a great mom.  I can't get over the unprofessional conduct of that counselor.

    •  OMG! Unclear on way too many concepts, imo. (5+ / 0-)

      To be perfectly clear, I mean the counselor, not you.

    •  Wow.... "We can compromise...?!?" ... (0+ / 0-)

      "We...?!?"  Counselor is a control freak and likely uses her degree to legitimize her 'expertise' in the area of how to manage (control) kids and parents.

      Counselor needs to be taken down a peg or two.

      Kgirl, OTOH, is doing good if she's 'only' confused at this point - her sexual orientation needs to be worked out on her own.  You already know she needs to have your support no matter what, and that's all to the good that you already do.  Meanwhile, whatever books, counseling she needs (altho not that school counselor), etc., to make her feel at ease with her own decisions.

      Everything gets better later when adulthood sets in..., altho I'm sure Kgirl doesn't feel that way just yet.

      [I remember lots of confusion for my teen years, and I didn't have any gender identity to work out.  It was about the only topic over which there was no confusion for me; I was born straight and I knew that without any discussion.]

      I'm sick of attempts to steer this nation from principles evolved in The Age of Reason to hallucinations derived from illiterate herdsmen. ~ Crashing Vor
