My two older girls are seeing a therapist once a week. They share one hour so our visits go like this... usually she is about 5 minutes behind so there we are down to 55 minutes. She spends the first 10-15 minutes talking to us as a group (pretty much reviewing what she already told us last week). Then talks to each girl alone for about 10 minutes and then calls all of us in for the remaining 10-15 minutes to basically tell us it went well and that the girls are really openning up and to schedule the next apointment. I don't know much about therapy but why is she not sitting with my husband and I alone for a few minutes to see if we have anything that is concerning us. Plus I feel that 10-15 minutes just doesn't seem like much time for each of my girls to get to discuss anything they are feeling. Also it really bothers me that she is talking to my girls alone and I have no idea what they are discussing, for all I know they could be talking about the color red for 10 minutes or why aren't we kinda in on what they are feeling because shouldn't all us adults be on the same page in order to get better results. I look at it like school, if the child is flunking math and the teacher doesn't say anything to the parent then how is the parent supposed to know what their child needs to work on? Any thoughts?
