Build a strong bond with your child’s teacher
Your child’s teacher will be a significant person in her life this year. So it’s a good idea for the two of you to build a strong bond. That way, you can work together, share information and head off any problems that may come up.
Make sure you:
- Attend parent/curriculum night. While this isn’t the time or place for a long one-on-one
talk, it will help each of you put a name with a face.
- Share information. There may be things you want the teacher to know. Changes at home (even the birth of a baby) can affect children. So write a note, send an email or ask if the teacher can call you to talk. The more she understands about your child, the more she’ll be able to help.
- Let your child know you respect her teacher. Your attitude will affect your child’s behavior in class.
