Gouri Dange says it's often better to leave the counsellor behind
Our 15-year-old daughter has been seeing a counsellor, as advised by her school, for behavioural issues. Sometimes the counsellor calls us in too, sometimes it’s just my wife, or just her and our daughter together. The problem is that my wife often comes home and repeats some of the things that the counsellor has told her, or questions our daughter about some things that she has confided in the counsellor. This leads to a fight and soon our daughter will refuse to go to the counsellor. This has happened before. Please advise if our handling of the situation is wrong and how to stop this relaying of information. Should we change the counsellor?
