We’ve begun a new school year. For those parents who do not necessarily have A+ students you more than likely feel a certain sense of anxiety whenever it’s time to meet and discuss your child’s achievements. Likely, you may feel worried about hearing negative comments. What parent wants to hear anything but praise concerning their children’s progress? I know I did. Unfortunately my experience was not always the best. Thankfully, my son’s teacher’s were always as concerned as I regarding my his academic achievement.
This time of year is one full of both excitement and anxiety. As a parent, you may have spent the summer working or you may have spent the summer vacationing with your children. Hopefully your child was able to read a few books over the summer or at least watched educational television at one point or another.
