Parents: on the other side of the trenches


Here is a great post from Katie Martin (the name similarity is coincidental) which explains what parents might be thinking when they bring us their kids. (And it’s not always: “When are they going to do more grammar?”) They need to know if their children are going to be safe, if their unique needs are going to be met, if we can help them succeed in life and work together with the parents to achieve this – in short, they want to know if we care.

Do we care? I think it’s impossible not to. Do we show them we care?
