Remember when daredevil Nik Wallenda crossed the Grand Canyon on a tight rope? Well, dealing with a slacker guidance counselor can also be a balancing act, albeit not quite as dangerous.
When the counselor has already dropped the ball once, it’s reasonable to worry that it could happen again. But the counselor–who prepares each student’s School Report (which includes a potentially important recommendation) —is holding a lot of cards. So it’s also reasonable to worry that pushing too hard may put you … and your child … in the counselor’s bad graces.
