Parents will sometimes come to the defense of their child before they even stop and think. They are parents, that is what they do. They will defend their child in front of anybody, regardless of the action.
I want parents to teach their child! They need to teach their child Respect. They need to teach their child how to develop a strong work ethic. Parents need to teach their child, that when authority speaks, you listen. You may not always agree, but you can learn how and when to disagree in a respectful way. Teach your child to follow rules!
Children need to be prepared to enter school. Parents are the ones who prepare these children. Teachers guide and direct children. The world is not out to get you and your child. A teacher is not out to get your child. If this is the attitude you have, look in the mirror, the problem is right in front of you.
Yes parents, you have a huge role in the success of your child. If you didn’t teach your child how to be respectful, stay in their seat, work hard, say nothing but nice things, how is a teacher supposed to educate them?
Parents are very good at criticizing teachers and schools when their child doesn’t succeed. Students are very good at blaming someone else for their shortfalls. If you care as much as you say you do, put in the work to insure that your child works hard to be successful, you will be amazed at the difference t will make in your child’s education.
So, yes parents, this is on you! You have a job to do as well. Your pay is the success that your child has. There is no money, there is just heart, dedication, perseverance, and a relentless work ethic.
Step up and get your work on!
