Every parent wants to make a good impression on their children’s teachers, but ask any teacher what the hardest part of their job is, and there’s a good chance they will say: parents. So, how do you avoid being THAT parent? Here, teachers from preschool through high school tell us 9 things parents do that drive teachers crazy:
1. Give them yet another coffee mug as a back-to-school gift.
2. Ignore information from the school, and then complain that you don’t know what’s going on.
3. Refuse to put your cell phone away during drop-off and pick-up.
4. Send your child to school with supplies that weren’t on the list.
5. Blame other kids when your child does something wrong.
6. Assume that we don’t like your child because they got a bad grade.
7. Refuse to let your child take ownership for their actions.
8. Ignore our recommendations and push your child too hard.
9. Refuse to put aside your differences for the benefit of your child.
Get the full detailed list, HERE! And go ahead and send us others that you think of.
