Provided a lot of information. Q: How can an educator determine what social, mental, emotional struggles the parents have?

This was very informative and gave me a good insight of how the parents feel and what they envision when they come in for a conference. It gives me a way to look at how the children in my class might be affected by their parents actions.
Good resource - I am going to search for additional webinars on this topic. I think we have all encountered challenging parents and professional assistance is greatly appreciated.

This webinar presented reasons why parents may be aggressive, but didn't actually explain much in terms of actually dealing with the parents. It sounds like that aspect is coming up in a companion webinar. The background information was good though.
