Understanding The Importance of Good Parent-Teacher Relationship

A post titled, “The Words Every Parent Dreads: “We Need To Have A Chat About Your Child,” peaked my interest this morning. Although my kids are not yet attending formal school, I found the article really helpful.

A lot of parents today do not fully grasp the type of relationship they need to build with teachers in order to provide the best educational outcome for their children. Most parents do not give enough time to form close connections with the people at school who play a role in educating their children. This happens because they are too busy or they feel that it is not necessary to go to such lengths.

However as a parent, I personally think that kids will thrive more in school if everyone who is involved in their learning and development maintains good communication with each other. This way there is continuity and consistency in the lessons delivered, acknowledgement of accomplishments, and proper and prompt problem management.
