  • I'm not a teacher, but I kind of understand what you are saying. Teachers see alot of bad behavior in kids and are aware that if the parents did a few things different in the discipline department they wouldn't have to be doing as much to get the kids to learn, and behave in class. Are there some specifics that you meant?

  • I used to tutor and no there is not anything I can say about parents parenting unless it directly affected my students well being. In other words if my kids came in clean, fed, and did not seem abused then the rest was up to me and the teachers I worked in conjunction with. It is our jobs to teach, not judge parents.

  • I teach preschool and my only advice is get involved with your child's education and communicate with the teacher. If the teacher is having an issue with your child help to find a solution. Same goes with if you are having an issue let the teacher know. I believe it is a team effort

  • It may be "for teachers," but you clearly posted this with the intent of causing drama.

  • Unless a child is being abuse, I stay out of parenting choices. It is NOT by business.
