works for me

january 16 2008




What works for me before a meeting is reading about the subject.
I'm not talking about meetings about technical subjects, but meetings at school about
everyday subjects like bullying, behaviour, teacher-child interaction and such.

Knowing how other parents think about these subjects helps me to form my own opinion.
I also often find out which solutions other schools have offered.
That enables me to think about it, see what I want for my children, and what doesn't work. For instance.

The schools I have to deal with often come with easy solutions that won't involve much effort on the part of school.
But I want the best for my child(ren) and when I'm well informed I can give them the best solution for my child when they won't come up with something.

Works for me.

  1. You have to do your research! Great reminder. And knowing what other schools have done makes you part of the solution.

  2. Good for you! When I was fighting to get speech therapy & physical therapy for one of my sons I would arrive at every meeting with a case of papers! :)

    I got all the services I wanted, too!

    Love your site, darlin'!

  3. Laane,
    Thanks so much for your comments today!

    I totally agree with you on reading and prep before a meeting. It helps to have an idea so that one can help add to the meeting or make an informed decision.
