my guidance/school counselor is unhelpful

if you've seen one of my previous posts, i said that my counselor has only told me to do extracurriculars, extra work, and more work i don't need instead of suggesting things i actually need to understand and work at my pace.

are there physical authoritative figures (other than parents) that can help me and my dad decide what is better for me and my education (such as a therapist, or out-of-school counselor that can help me)?

also if y'all could help, it would be great. (the only reason i'm seeing for physical people is that my dad, counselor, and school authorities ignore and sometimes ridicule online advice because "they could be cat fishing/lying/not truly educated".

thank you.

I'm a teen girl who radically despises school for being the way it is. I'm also a poet/writer/artist. i couldn't decide on one thing.

wow ethan great moves keep it up proud of you i suggest you look at this

RE: my guidance/school counselor is unhelpful

check out some of my musings. my Three Category System pretty much justifies the philosophy behind unschooling. those ideas stand on their own, but please feel free to argue with me or ask questions. (I wish my musings were more interactive)

I can give all sorts of rationale. no need to quote me. if you understand it well enough that makes it your idea

Wisdom is to follow only the Opinion which makes the best use of evidence.
Excellence is to be mindful of all these things in Living.

I thought your dad said you could do homeschooling by yourself at home?

The trouble with "physical people" is that they tend to have wildy varying opinions and are often biased in favour of doing things in "the conventional way", and it's hard to find ones that aren't.

I suppose you could try looking up homeschooling groups in your area and trying to ask some of the people there for advice.

RE: my guidance/school counselor is unhelpful

Anything school appointed is going to see the solution as more school. If are given a hammer and spend all day hammering nails, doing so will create a world in which even a screw will look like a nail to you. That is your school shrink.

Sadly anything not school appointed or related will not be free and therefore I have doubts your father will jump on that option.

I would need to know you better to offer any advice of my own but I can try to help if you want, and it would be free. As someone that saw a shrink for a while I can say that what felt best wasn't getting advice back on my problems but simply bitching to someone about them that wasn't going to tell me to shut up and get back to work or whatever. Sort of like a moral support.

Whilst some work diligently there are those who ask why. I am one of them

School counselors are mostly shit. Trust me. My counselor was a fucking old bitch who I hope gets fired.
