Investigating

My school is driving me nuts. Every little thing that a parent asks of me, the secretary or ops director says something about it... "They aren't living with family - they are just trying to get homeless money." "They don't need uniforms, they are just too cheap to buy one." "They don't need counseling, they just want attention."

Personally, though I do take steps to make my parents more accountable (i.e. walking to pick up food from a nearby school rather than requesting a Lyft to come to our school), I do not care about giving someone a uniform if I have them. I don't feel like it's my job to investigate the family for truth telling.

Just a random school counselor thought.

That is so true! It's not your job to play detective. The office staff is just making it harder for those in need to receive assistance. That is so frustrating! It's so hard to try to help others when you are constantly being blocked.
