Information About Building Bridges Between Home And School: The Educator's / Teacher's Guide To Dealing With Emotional And Upset Parents
According to a recent article in the Kansas City Star entitled Teachers Experience a Growing Number of Angry, Abusive parents , abuse, and even violence aimed at teachers by parents is happening more often, and is becoming more severe.
While this isn't surprising, given society's seeming loss of civility, it's a huge problem, for a multitude of reasons, with school safety at the head of the line, and right behind it, the need for schools to work in tandem with parents for the good of each and ever child.
I decided to rewrite and re-publish a handbook or guide for educators to help them deal more effectively with those angry situations. Based on the idea that it takes a village to teach a child, the book provides educators with practical, behavioral actions to take in dealing with emotional parents.
