These days many parents want their children to have "advanced" academic skills. Too often these expectations are developmentally inappropriate. In this segment our guests provide guidance to teachers on how to manage inappropriate expectations from parents.

 

 

 

Here are a few of their suggestions:

 

  • Get parents more involved in the classroom so they know what’s happening.

  • Show parents the types of work the students are completing.

  • Let parents know about developmental milestones and stages.

  • Communicate expectations.

  • Bring to light what the child is mastering.

  • Share the good, as well as the bad, about what the child is doing!
