I'm very upset

My ex n I have always had separate conferences, I don't want to be near him or his wife.

My son's new teacher this year said that she is not willing to schedule multiple conferences unless an issue of DV or something of the like is the reason for separate conferences.

I told her I just do not get along with my ex or his wife, and his teacher said that has nothing to do with education and my focus is getting all adults on the same page as she believes it's important we are all there as the adults who help him with his education.

Can I talk to the principal about this? I don't want a joint conference.

Let him have his conference then. You can always call for another appt later in the year.

The teacher will not do a separate one. I asked her for a separate one and that is what she told me.

I'm with the teacher. If you want to know what's going on in the school just go to the conference. You're not there for your ex, his wife or yourself. You're supposed to be there for your child.

You need to grow up and suck it up to be in the same room for 15 minutes

Sometimes what you want is not what you can get. Go to the conference , just keep it it your mind that this is for your son's education.


Reality is that you need to learn how to coexist with them for certain times of your son's life.

I guess you will have to miss out if your not willing to attend. I dont believe teachers should accomodate that unless there is a DV issue.
