I need guidance, I have a student in my school, studying in 9th grade.. She has offlate come too close to me and I don't feel comfortable. I try my best to avoid too much interactions with her as I am a teacher and respect boundaries. She came closer to me during a play, which I was preparing. but know she follows me everywhere and at times disturbs me also during my classes. I have told her to make less visit to me , unless or until it is important. And she keeps asking me to hug her, as she takes me as her mom and her as my adopted daughter. She has even kept her phone code on my name and when I asked her to keep her mother's or any other person's name, then she said that it's only me in her mind all the time. She even feels jealous of I take snap with other colleagues, then she also wants pic with me, which I avoid as I am a reserve person and doesn't like taking pics especially with my school students. If I scold her then she cries and next day say sorry and again try to be with me. I even tried to show her that I am avoiding her by talking less to her but she finds this or that way to come closer to me and talk to me. She even tried to hack my Facebook account and retrieve my old photos, but I showed my unhappiness to her and told not to interfere in my personal life. Please tell me how to deal this problem.

I understand your discomfort when your students cross your personal line. to deal with this problem ,May you tell me since when she started this behavior with you? If you could recollect Could you relate anything of you to her behavior, what she was getting from you that she was not getting with anyone or even her mom.? Once if you could identity, talking to student openly about it in a way she that she understands the root cause of it would help her to be aware and work accordingly . Also if not you could refer her to the school counselor. Do let me know if you need anything in more in specific
