In some ways, we’re THOSE parents. We love discussing every detail of our kids’ school days after they go to bed. When we find out a class unit has just ended, we head to the library to pick up extra material. We sing songs about math in the car, we’ve had our kids writing their letters in everything from paint to salt trays, and we always volunteer for anything volunteery. (Don’t hate us, though—the house is rarely tidy and we’ve spent entire afternoons lately watching Ben 10.)
The one thing we hesitate over is contacting our kids’ teachers. We’re wishy-washy on what the line is between being proactive and involved and just plain annoying. Luckily, Shana Aborn of Romper has the scoop, and it’s pretty reassuring!
—Pay attention to communication from the school! Sign up for emails, “like” that Facebook page, sign up for Remind or whichever app their school prefers, and check their backpacks for papers every night.
—Save teacher conversations for appropriate times, like scheduled meetings. Waving them over at drop-off means the class’s whole morning could be delayed.
—Show you value the health of the rest of the school community and keep sick kids home.
