You are working as a school counselor and have been working with Marie, a young third-grade girl who is very shy. Marie refuses to look at adults when she speaks and does not have any friends despite her classmates reporting that she is â€œvery nice.â€ One afternoon, her brotherâ€™s kindergarten teacher rushes into your office and insists that the student has reported that he (Kevin) and Marie were â€œbeing touchedâ€ by their after school babysitter. The children have already left for the day.
