How Do You Treat Your Child’s Teacher?

I read a post this morning that I think is worth sharing with all of you–“How to Treat a Teacher Right.” Although none of my kids are in school yet, my eldest will be entering formal education soon so I am kind of into these sort of things now. When my eldest goes to school, I want to be as helpful as I can be–not only to him but also to everyone who is involved in his care and education.

Being a mother, I know how difficult it is to be around kids–supervise them, teach them etc. So I could imagine how tough a teacher’s job is–being supervisor to a handful of children. How do you treat your child’s teacher? I have a few friends who are not in the best terms with their children’s teacher and I do not see anything positive coming from such rifts. So I would want to prepare myself so I could better understand my kid’s future teacher and have the best relationship with him/her.

So how do you treat your child’s teacher? How do you maintain a positive relationship with him/her?

Parents are a Child’s First Teacher for So Many Things

Dads and moms everywhere have a lot of parenting responsibilities. One of those responsibilities is teaching which can be complex. Teaching typically means reading, writing, and arithmetic but in parenting it means everything. Parents are their child’s first teacher for many life skills. They teach a child everything from talking to different and more complex life skills.

A recent post on Summer Nannies titled, “10 Sports Every Dad Should Teach Their Son” hit on this topic. This article can apply to moms, dads, daughters, and sons everywhere and features a great list of games that parents should teach to their children! Sports are only one of the many things a child will learn from their parent.
