Five Simple Words...

Well, today we had parent/teacher conferences and I'm not sure how other schools do it, but we have them on the last Thursday of EVERY month. I guess this is good for accountability, communication with parents etc., etc., etc., and so on and so forth, but it is so draining. I haven't quite grasped the hang of the parent/teacher conference, because I can't stand to give a parent "bad" news about their child (behavior, academics, whatever the issue is...) I don't like confrontation, and I have a hard time dealing with parents who think their child is a genius whenever they are simply "average." This doesn't mean their child is "stupid" - just normal. Anyway, I think I've learned the value of five simple words: "Your child is doing fine!" This phrase works wonders.

    "My Child is doing just fine." Very proud of you. Actually, you are doing way better than just fine. Love you to pieces.
