parents and teachers (s/o- my soapbox on the theme)
I am both a parent and a teacher.
I think everyone needs to realize that nobody is perfect. Parents make mistakes, teachers make mistakes, and children make mistakes. We all need to allow for open communication with RESPECT. When one side comes into an interaction with accusations, hostility, and aggression.... no progress will be made.
Expect imperfection, hard work, and working toward a common goal. And more than anything, expect to model respect, communication, goal setting, handling frustration, and handling failures for the children.
