3. You could tell your mom exactly what happened. Call it women’s intuition, gut feelings or whatever you like, but If something is actually going on, your mom may already have a pretty good idea about it. This really should be between the two of them.
None of these options are easy, and we understand that. Please know that your school counselor’s office is a safe place where whatever you discuss will remain confidential. No one will be called unless there is a danger of you harming yourself or someone else. Your counselor will not pick up the phone and call either parent with this information.
It might make you feel better to get another opinion or just have someone to talk to about it. Please know that our hearts break for you. No child, no matter what age, should have to be burdened with something of this nature.
Most of all, you have to know this is not your fault. Please let us know if there is anything else we can do to help.
