  • My son is 2 1/2 and he starts school sep 9th. He has spina Bifida and needs to be cathed every 4 hours. I’m worried and nervous if he’s going to be safe or are people going to be nice to him, is the nurse gonna cath him on time and properly & ect. His teacher called me yesterday telling me I won’t have a home visit from her because I live in a different district but he has had teachers come to visit before so I kinda felt upset because I was looking forward to that and everyone else will have a home visit & I’m trying to really figure it out and see how can I bring this up to the parent orientation. I really hope it’s true what she said but something is telling me she just didn’t want to make the effort of driving the 40mins to my house. What can I do or say?

  • I love how you say that the teacher is part of the team. I’m a teacher and a parent of 3 and I love this video.

    Remember it really is in the teacher’s best interest that the classroom dynamics are working. So even if the teacher isn’t “on your side” from the get go (we all have bad days) they will be very soon if they feel like you are trying to solve a situation and not just there to blame and be angry.

    Thanks for another great video.

  • I love this. I am a teacher and it expains this so well.
    I normally start by listening to the perents myself. I learn so much about the childs life by just listening to the people in the child’s life.

  • My child is 5 year old and started his kindergarten,and our teacher keeps him on a blue line for 10 days already,and she told my son he is lying about the work she showed to him,he said we have done this already at home,so I am on my breaking point just to go and face her,but I am still trying to not to show all my frustration to my child.Please if you do have any ideai how to resolve this situation,I will be very grateful, thanks

  • 1/ Take care of yourself
    2/ Take care of the team. The teachers are a PART of the team. Listen 1st. Ask Questions. Thank the teachers. Stay factual.
    3/ Love your kids. Advocate for them, but Don’t alienate the teachers.
    4/ Discipline your kids

    p.s. my personal take: it’s all mostly great advice, but in the kid’s interest, lets remember that some teachers are NOT on your team, but can be real enemies that destroy kids. This should be squarely addressed. I’ve seen many kids lose their way because of BAD teachers, principals, etc. Disclosure: Aside from being a parent myself, I’m a former public school teacher. Way too many teachers are burnt out and lack commitment.

  • Most of the time I have a great connection with my kids teachers. I ask once a week how they’re doing, if there is a problem.
    The last teacher of my daughter (mother of an autistic child) gave me many tips on how to help her focus.
    When my children were so tight that they could not make friends, I talked to the teachers and my children and we came to the compromise that they only play together during one break. she also helped my daughter find better contact to her classmates.
    But sometimes I had to stand up for my kids and said them that something isn’t ok.
    ( In Pre school one teacher don’t let my daughter go to the toilet during the class and she told her she has to go in the break…not ok with a 5 years old… She has to pee in her pants. Or in another one told my daughter she can’t were that scarf, because it isn’t part of the Uniform, but they don’t have one for the Uniform).
    My kids know, that I will work with them, BUT I stand always behind my children

  • How do you talk to an incompetent teacher to help your child? Cause there are teachers that are giving service to children while most of them sees the job as just a paycheck.

  • I’ve watched this several times, trying to calm my brain. I know that especially today, the teachers are required to teach so much and the standards are set so high, that it can be stressful… and yes, they are not in it for the pay. Having said that, repeating it over and over again in my head appreciate… appreciate… appreciate… How do you handle it after you have had several civil and “productive” conversations with a teacher that still doesn’t have details on specific negative behavior, resolve to continue improvement strategies, nor do they communicate behavior issues in a timely manner. All of this leaving me getting all of my information from a 7 year old which can’t tell the difference between “yesterday” and “last week”… much less explain what happened in a situation that may or may not have happened in school two days ago with another student.

    Trying to keep in sync with your channel, I feel I’m doing okay on the parent side… kid listens the first time (the majority of the time), we openly communicate, I’m relatively calm when discussing or conversing with my child. What do you do when you’re into “Living on Purpose”, but the teacher is not. Even after deep breathing, meditating, doing a round of office exercises, and putting off my own work running a company of over 300 adults… my calm phase still includes several 4-letter words that most likely will only make matters worse.

  • Great video Dr.Paul,even though my son not yet going to school now i just want to learn something.Thank you so much Dr.Paul and Ms.Vicki ������

  • Honey, I never worried! I called, made an appointment and spoke my mind! If they were kind I was kind. I would always go online and print out any policies that backed me up and read it to them. Then I would go up the ladder if we were unable to come to a resolution. They are paid by us. But, I was always active in school events when possible and even organized events to be on good footing with the school and teachers.
