Some of you have been around since I announced that Goose was going to be put into a special counseling program at school. If not, well due to my child's behaviors (total meltdowns, pushing/shoving, and tall-tales) they placed her in a county funded counseling program. The counselor goes to the school every Monday afternoon and meets with kids identified as high risk. do you know how hard it is to admit that my child is high risk!? I know she's not perfect, but high risk :o(
Today was the first time for me to actually have a chance to sit down and talk with the counselor. Instead of being told a lot about Goose's progress, or lack there of, she asked me to tell her how Goose is at home and what all has been happening. Me being me, tried to be very vague and not share too many details, but she managed to weasel things out of me. She said that what I shared filled in a lot of missing pieces of things Goose had shared with her. Like mommy's friend who she never gets to see and the classmates & teachers she misses. Like going to the police station, the police coming to the house, and the ambulance taking me away. This lady enforced what I already know, but am too afraid to do anything about.
At the very end it was shared that Goose is making some progress, but not a lot. She is going to continue to see the counselor and I am to meet with them regularly also. I am praying for the strength to get through this and for Goose to be open to the changes that are sure to come.
