Parent teacher conference

Now that was an uncomfortable experience. Listening to the teacher talk about improvement needs and some behavioral issues. Knwoing that the behavoiral issues will probably get worse over the next year. Knowing that my son won't be going to that same school next year. Having to sit next to my soon to be ex and pretend that everything is hunky dorey in the world.

I don't like this at all one bit. And when the teacher would ask questions, I would hesitate to answer. I don't know what to say.


  1. I can understand your frustration. My wife's son had a lot of trouble in school, but we found it to be more a lack of support at school— they just gave up on him. I never understood the slogan "No child left behind".

    Hoping that these days of transition can move you more in a positive direction.

  2. Do teachers really like kids? Good luck in your transition. You're strong and you will be just fine. I think you'll like who evolves.
