IN THE EYES OF A PARENT

   
As parents we often feel intimidated by teachers and administrators and are haunted by the memories of childhood school experiences that were perhaps not pleasant. We often do not know  what questions to ask or how much to interfere in the school life of our children.  Teachers and administrators sometimes lead us to feel that we are on opposite tracks when it comes to the welfare of our children and many fail to realize that home circumstances are sometimes beyond our control.  Rather than looking at each and blaming the school or the home for the problems of the child, we need to be more tolerant of each other and to work together to help our children.
   
As a parent, have you honestly made an attempt to work with the school?  What things would you like to see change?  Do you have a heart-warming story to tell  or an unpleasant experience?
