Beginning Teacher Talk


Dec 15, 2021

By the time December rolls around, it's very likely that you have had at least one experience with a difficult parent. Maybe it was during a parent-teacher conference, or maybe it was a nasty email or phone call. Facing a parent who has a complaint or is challenging you in some way is extremely difficult to deal with, especially because you probably haven't had any preparation for these scenarios. Learning to handle parents effectively is a learned skill set and having strategies in place will help you to feel calm and confident when faced with difficult parents in the future. I'm sharing some entertaining, yet very relatable, examples and words of wisdom from Suzanne Tingley's book, How to Handle Difficult Parents.
