Address Bullying, Improve Student - Guidance Counselor Relationship

This petition had 78 supporters

Innocent students fall victims to either being bullied or being the one who bullies. What causes this? The reasons can be close to infinity. It can be because of parental issues, or maybe a problem inside the classroom—there’s no way to actually pin point the problem . . . unless the person tells you personally. And this is why the role of guidance counselors play a vital role in making sure students are emotionally healthy.

What comes in mind when the term “guidance counselor” is mentioned? The stigma is that students often think those who talk with the guidance counselor are kids who have done trouble and are in for a scolding—suspension even. This causes most students to think negatively about guidance counselors, when in fact, it is the job of a guidance counselor to listen to each and every student’s problems and give these students comfort and motivation. Students should feel like they can open up, they should be comfortable to share their feelings. In our schools, let's strive to have an enhanced relationship between students and guidance counselors.

Join us in creating a much better learning environment where students can be open and be who they want to be without having to resort to hurting others or themselves, one where the next time you have a problem, you have someone in school whom you will not hesitate to talk to.
