my dad trig

Postby Treloarbabe » Tue Jun 28, 2011 6:39 pm

when my Dad took me to therapy this week (I am disabled), he said hello to my therapist, asked him how he was, and then he asked my therapist whether the t-shirt he had on was from Rohan.

I am/was very embarrased about this. I am very cross with Dad, he did not act appropriately at all and my Dad frightens me with his behaviour?

Am I being stupid? I love professional boundaries and I am very cross with my Dad for asking him that! It is not professional!!!!!!!!!!!!!

:(

Parents can be embarrassing. Did you ask him not to do it?
It is your therapy, so to feel comfortable is important. If you feel it is making you more nervous or affecting your therapy, or relationship with your therapist, then put some rules down for your dad.

I think it is important for you to feel comfortable regarding therapy, and clear boundaries work for you but try to remember it is you that has the professional relationship with your therapist - not your dad.

I personally don't think there was anything offensive in what he said but if it made you embarrased the best thing you can do is let your dad know how you felt.
