Every parent wants to raise children who are happy and successful and want their kids to get good grades at school. There are many ways that they can be a great student. If anyone knows how to raise an academically successful student, it's a TEACHER.
Our topic right now is HOW TO IMPROVE PARENT- TEACHER COMMUNICATION.
So, we are here to discuss another parenting tip for raising great students. I have FIVE TIP o share for improving communication with teachers.
FIRS IP- referred Method of Communications
You need to find out what your teachers Preferred Method of Communication. Most schools will have a system already set up but some teachers don’t like to use the school system, you just have to ask them. You need to find out what the teacher likes to do and you need to use that system. What I recommend is that you go ahead and go through that system and see if the teacher responds.
Reach out to them in an unaggressive manner and you can find out how your teacher likes to communicate.
SECON IP- What We Should Communicate About?
One of the biggest things we should communicate with our teachers about is the behavior of our children. Let the teacher know about you child’s behavior at home and maybe the teacher has some kind of great method to help you with it.
You and the teacher can make a great team. You can try that at home also.
Remember, home and family are significant factors in student learning and achievement.
THIR IP- hat You Need To Know.
There’s two things that should always be communicated between a parent and a teacher. The first one, is what the teacher expects. The second is feedback. You need to know what to expect and then you need to have feedback on how you’re doing in order to maximize what your child does at school. So, that’s kind of a minimum communication you need to have between yourself and the teacher. EXPECTATIONS and FEEDBACK.
FOURT IP- ribe Your Teachers.
You want to have a good relationship with your teachers. You can bribe them with actual things that cost money or you can bribe them with your time.
Start with something your child’s teacher could actually use. Search for a significant items that relate to being a teacher. Because you want them to be having great days, so that positive energy goes into your child as well. These gestures show that you are a parent who appreciates the sacrifices he or she makes for your child and see yourself as an active partner in the classroom. The teachers will also greatly appreciate it.
FIFT IP-ave a Positive Attitude
As a parent, you should always have a positive attitude towards your child’s teacher. The teacher is not the enemy. Do not think that that your teacher is out to get your child. If there is problem with the scoring on an assignment or test.
They didn’t do anything on purpose to damage your child. They want your child to do well and so do you. You should be on the same team. Parents are role models to their children. So be as positive as you can and you are going to have a better outcome.
Good two-way communication between families and schools is necessary for your students. Make sure that as parents you are responsible for your child and teachers should be aware that she is not only responsible for a students. arents who participate in school activities and events will have added opportunities to communicate with teachers. The more you are involved with your teacher in the classroom news and part of school happenings, the more you’ll be like a team.
If you keep these communication ground rules in mind, teachers will thank you, and your life as a parent will be much easier!
The best way to avoid misunderstandings between the parties is to have ongoing, COMMUNICATION. Open up the lines of communications with teachers because this alone can be a powerful thing.
