Partnering with Parents

Check Out the New Blog Partnering with ParentsThe other day as I watched a parent and a teacher communicate at a conference, I observed what came across as distrust, and possibly even some hostility. The parent was demanding and the teacher didn’t have the time to give the answers that the parent needed. I wondered about how this strained relationship might impact the child and his classroom experience. I’m not sure that such a scene is so unfamiliar.

Teachers and parents need to understand each other and work together. Building and supporting parent relationships is not easy. However, the benefits are huge, and it makes the teaching experience a lot more enjoyable.

I’m excited to tell you that we are launching a new course about “Partnering with Parents.” By taking steps to build positive relationships, we encourage our students to do the same with people in their interactions.

What are some obstacles that you have encountered in parent relationships, and how have you overcome them?
