    Parent Perspective
    By pjm

    My whole perspective on parent teacher conferences changed the day I went to my son's conference in MARCH and the teacher began the conference by saying well now that I finally like Zack! I never heard another word past that. I kept thinking 'now that you finally like Zack???? now? in March?' What was going on before now? I always think of that when I prepare my conferences and vow that I will never say anything so hurtful to my parents.

    I don't suppose that's much advice but here- think like a parent. What would you like to hear and not hear about your own child and then do or don't say it! If you have to say a negative think about how it will sound and try to find a kind way to say your child is a jerk.
