GREEN BAY — Providers participating in School Counseling this summer in the Green Bay School District are urging parents this school year to get involved in counseling their children.

It’s a frustration that Joanne Klysen, director of community counseling at Foundations Health & Wholeness, says stands out more than most of the problems she sees in her young clients.

Parents, Klysen said, can get involved in a number of ways: they can ask their child if they’d like to share anything they talked about during a session, they can arrange with the provider to participate in a parent-child session if all parties agree, or, potentially, they could consider counseling independent of that of their child.

That last point, Klysen said, tends to get the biggest response, and it’s not always taken graciously.
