  • “My best friend won’t talk to me and I’m not sure what I did wrong. “
  • “I made a really nice project in art and I’m proud of myself! I wanted you to see it.”
  • “I’m new at this school and I don’t know anyone and I’m kind of scared.”
  • “I feel like I don’t have any friends.”

Here are some reasons that parents may want to talk to the school counselor:

  • “There was a death in the family and my child seems very sad.”
