That's one thing I told the mom when she confided to the teacher; that her son might not like it. In a way, I also understand her. She was desperate for help with her son. She thought that since her child talks to that teacher, he'll be able to help out straighten the poor kid. :-( You're right MrsJones and the thing is, he knows that I know what's going on in the family. And since I'm his mom's friend, he can just imagine that whatever he tells me, I will tell his mom about it. So he won't confide in me for sure. I've started to keep my distance for some time now. So I'm just looking forward to the professional help that they've sought.
