Tip #81: Watch your words
Whenever you are talking about school or your child's teacher, try and refrain from saying negative things in front of them. In many cases school was not a positive experience for the parent, so they think and speak about the school and teachers in ways that will make the child think and act negative at school. Try to be positive in front of the child and deal as positively with the teachers and administration, so there can be a partnership between the two to help your child have a good school year. Usually if a parent is calm and positive the school will do whatever they can to help.
