The school psychologist wants to have a meeting at my house...

and I really don't want her too. It's not that I have something to hide, but my son goes to a school that has mainly rich kids. We are not poor but we are not wealthy either. We are also in the middle of some home improvement projects and I really don't want to explain every little thing- "oh, this is here because of this reason", etc. I just don't feel comfortable having guests other than family over right now. I am also a little upset that last year, we were begging the her to offer some suggestions/advice, basically just point us in the right direction and we got nada from her and now I feel like she is wanting to point the finger at me! I want to be cooperative, but I am thinking about telling her that I would feel more comfortable having the meeting at the school. Cont....

  • Am I wrong for feeling this way and I should just suck it up and have the meeting at my house or should I stand my ground and say that I will be willing to have the meeting at the school?

  • The psychologist is there to help and shouldn't judge based on your income. Maybe you could suggest a meeting at a neutral location by letting her know the house is under construction right now.

  • You will sound defensive and guity if you don't meet with her. So what if your house isn't perfect. THAT is not important. Your family and your kids are more important. Be cooperative and helpful for your child's sake. Just suck it up and have her over and be gracious and hospitable..

  • Just tell her what to expect when she gets there. I'd let her in, otherwise she may think you are hiding something.

  • Is getting your child the help he/she needs is more important than your pride? Get over yourself and have the meeting. It's not about YOU.

  • I think it is totally inappropriate thar a school official of any kind would come out to your home for any reason.

  • Tell her you are in the process of some home improvements right now and you would like to have the meeting at school. I've never heard of the school psychologist coming to your house for a meeting. Be nice about it, don't get hateful or you will give off the wrong impression. Tell her you will be more than willing to go to the school for a meeting. I really don't see why that would be a problem.
