Does anyone have any ideas on how to approach a parent who's child is in need of some counseling/therapy? I'm going to set up a conference with the students parents to discuss the possiblity of ADD/ADHD, but over the past week I have had some conversations with the student that lead me to believe that counseling/therapy may be needed. The conversations I had with the student centered around hurting other students who were "mean"...as well has hurting me when I am "mean". I'm not talking kindergarten logic either...this student has thought these things through and has plans. Granted, at this age, the student would have difficulty following through, but what about the future!! I have never seen the student be violent toward others, but the student is very manipulative and preys on weaker students. If it isn't addressed now, I fear that his plans could become a reality! I have documentation of the high points of our conversations and when they took place. I have talked with the school counselor (who was able to get the same information from the student). The students parents are very nice and open to communication, but this is a whole new area for me...WHAT DO I SAY??!!
