Soon it will be time for the annual teacher-parent conference. Many parents feel intimidated by their child's teacher. They sit at a conference, listening carefully to what the teacher says, but they are afraid to comment, contradict, or ask questions.
Usually, the parent will accept what the teacher has to say, nod a little, smile a lot, leave and go home. If the parent has heard something negative about the child, she goes home and rants and raves about this bad news. But, she doesn't have a clue about how to turn the situation around.
