The school has been through a lot of our ups and down in the last two years: when we became homeless, when I struggled with childcare, and a lot of other things. When I lost my job in January, I kept it low key and didn't advertize it. Thursday, the school councelor pulled my daughter how of class and was asking her questions. She wanted to know if I was working, and when my daughter told her I had a little haircut business at home, she said: "oh, yeah, that's right" (I don't even know how she would have known), she was asking her if they still saw the old babysitter, which, why would we have a sitter if I lost my job and have a little business at home? she asked a few other things and then when my daughter told her she was in the middle of math, she cut it short and sent her back to class. I don't know, I like to think she was asking out of concern, but part of me feels she was snooping. What do you think? sorry, I made this longer than I plannedAnswer Question

maybe you should call the counselor and in a very polite and nonchalant way say "my daughter said you had some questions so I thought I would just ring you and see if I could help you". If you call her in an accusatory manor you may not get the reason behind the questions. Very calm and nonchalant might get him/her to open up as to what he/she wanted to know.
