A lot of the posts I have read lately have a teacher vs parents feeling to them and I am just wondering why? This is a support group, is it not? This is a place to ask questions about things we are not clear on and someone else on here may have already gone through. Comments like "your precious little snowflake" and "everyone thinks their child is gifted or special" those comments are filled with sarcasm and meant to be condescending. I understand just like in any career a person sees a lot of the same type of things that can get annoying after a while and teachers are human and get jaded like the rest of us but it doesn't need to come out in a forum where people are seeking assistance, support, and guidance. I try to put myself in the teachers shoes whenever I make any requests and I know my child isnt the only child in her class. Is there anyway the teachers can do the same and try to understand parent love their kids and want the best for them arent we all wanting the same thing success for the kids? Does it have to be an us against them mentality can we try to see each other as teammates. I feel very lucky to have such a great rapport and open communication with my dd teacher but it didnt happen because of something I did or something she did, it happened because of something "we" did together.
