- Between every teacher and parent there is a wall. It is called “The Wall of Mutual Distrust” and it is imperative that your teachers recognize that it exists and realize that they have the ability to take some bricks off of that wall.
- Your teachers need to “Remember The Child In The Chair”. As difficult as some parents can be to deal with, those interactions become more effective when the teacher intentionally prioritizes the child’s needs.
- You can teach your teachers how to Make Listening Their Superpower through intentional practice of active listening.
- Surprise and Delight can be a powerful way to build relationships and goodwill with parents so that they are more likely to partner with your teachers in the future.
- Your teachers can Build Trust By Keeping Their Promises.
