We don’t know why this mother is upset, but she seems outraged. While it is certainly interesting to see this video (below), we wanted to use this as an opportunity to explain that there are right and wrong ways to address your child’s instructor.
After you watch the video, please visit this link to understand the correct ways to address your child’s teacher. Often times, children will tell us things that are simply untrue, or at the very least, somewhat biased. If you are a parent who is overzealous to defend your child against anyone who challenges him, you can become just the kind of helicopter parent who makes your child worse, rather than better.
Watch the video and tell us what you think. What are some suggestions on how to confront your child’s teacher?
