Working Closely with your Child's Teacher

CHAC has had a long association with Parenting Ideas; an online community connecting parents and educators with expert child development knowledge. Their aim is to help people successfully raise confident, happy and resilient kids. Over the course of nearly twenty years, they’ve become one of Australia’s most trusted sources of parenting education and support.

I regularly share articles and information with CHAC parents that I believe offer helpful advice, tips and explanations associated with raising children of all ages.

In this week's recommended reading, Parenting Educator Michael Grose suggests that strong parent-teacher relationships are one of the hallmarks of great schools and are a major factor in student success. He outlines five elements that can guide parents in forming strong bonds with their child’s teacher. They are:

  1. Knowing (building affinity)
  2. Supporting (building trust)
  3. Participating (building links to student learning)
  4. Communicating (building relationships)
  5. Advocating (building loyalty)
