Good webinar, parents really don't understand that how their attitudes and aggressions for teachers trickle down to the kids. This make the students feel some type of way towards the teacher, knowing that the parents are on their side. Some parents don't have a clue of how their kids are when they are not around them.
Staying calm when approached by an aggressive parent or family equates to professionalism. This training was very informative on how to manage aggression effectively.
Good information. Very detailed about things to do to help child and parent.
Thank you for the information with dealing with these types of issues.
Thank you for all the wonderful information. It's funny but as you say things, I can picture various parents and students in what you have described.
