Help Make the Most of Your Parent-Teacher Meeting

Now that your child has had a chance to settle into the new school year and meet their new teachers, it’s time for you, as their parent, to have the same opportunity through parent-teacher meetings. To help you prepare and to get the most out of your time, The Tutoring Center, Humble has prepared the following post.

A List

The first place to start is by setting aside some time, sitting down with some paper, and writing a list of all the items you want to speak with your child’s teacher about. Too many parents leave their meetings and suddenly remember important items they wanted to discuss but have now missed the opportunity for. When considering what to include on your list, consider items like your child’s strengths, their weaknesses (including any particular hurdles they came up against last year), and even their future career goals.

Important Items First

Once you are confident that everything is on your list, it’s time to prioritize them in order of importance. While you will, of course, want to speak about everything you have on your list, there is a chance that you will run out of time. By listing the most important items first, you can ensure that the time you do have is spent tackling the matters which matter the most.

Only Speak About What the Teacher Can Help With

It can be tempting for parents to spend their time with the teacher complaining about a range of issues, such as a new principal, how the school is being run, or even the healthiness of the food and drinks being served. While these are all valid concerns, they aren’t ones which your child’s teacher can help you with. Instead, stick to your list and ensure that you spend all of your time talking about your child and areas of their learning which their teacher can help with. The last thing you want is to realize that you have spent 10 minutes complaining about something their teacher can’t help with and now your allotted time has finished.
