    First Question
    By AmyK

    Clip to ScrapBook
    I always start my parent teacher conferences with "Since we only have 10 min, is there anything you wanted to be sure we address?"

    This covers two birds with one stone: parent feels like their needs are being heard; and secondly, you stay in control of the conference....they probably aren't ready to "jump right in" and will wait for you to get at whatever it is they are fearful of. Works for me!
