Do you want to hear good news? Or bad?
Anyway, I would rather them tell me their opinion of his abilities, instead of glossing over everything and putting a positive spin on them. Does that make sense?
It's not that I want all bad news instead of good. But I want to know what he can and cannot do - based on their professional opinion.
Do you want a realistic evaluation from your child's teachers at conference time? Or are you past that now and just want to hear some good news?
