  1. This should be required reading for all parents before their children start school. Letting the teacher/principal/school know that you are their partner, not their enemy, in resolving whatever situation may arise always gets one so much farther than assigning blame or demanding to know what the school is going to do about “it”, whatever “it” may be.


  2. Thank you so much for the kind words. And well said! Partnering with the school is so empowering and can accomplish so much more than acting as an adversary.
