….becoming the teacher's best friend!


Because parenting doesn’t come with an instruction manual, one can only gain insight into parent-teacher relationships by experience or learning from others’ mistakes. There are many articles out there on the importance of creating a strong foundation and working lines of communication with the teacher. But few explain how to do this so that you are always known as the “favorite parent”.

“Please handle with care. Please don’t let my children get lost. They’re breakable. And precious. Oh, but push them hard and don’t let up, and make sure they get into Harvard.” — Gibbs, Nancy(2005, February). Parents Behaving Badly, TIME Magazine
