A few ideas that may help you find your child more quickly.

ID Bracelet: Customize these bright disposable bracelets with your cell number and allergy/medical information.

Buddytag: These bracelets have a GPS tracker. A phone app tells you their whereabouts and alerts you if they go more than a specified distance away.

Temporary Tattoo: Write your cell number on one of these waterproof tattoos and paste it to your child’s arm.

Child ID Kit: Assemble one yourself with your child’s photo, height, weight, fingerprints and other identifying information to help law enforcement if ever necessary.

Set up a meeting with your child’s teacher. Provide her with an idea of what you would like to discuss so that she has time to prepare.

Be polite. Just like you, the teacher want the best for your child. It will be easier to communicate clearly if everyone is calm.

Explain the issue and what you have already tried. For example, “My child has trouble seeing the blackboard or whiteboard. She wears glasses, but it is not enough.”

Focus on solutions, not problems. Come with a few ideas of your own (“A seat closer to the front of the room might help.”). With the teacher, create an action plan that you can both set in motion when the meeting is over.

Approach the principal if you feel that the teacher is not hearing your concerns. If you know other parents with similar concerns, you might approach the teacher again together. You have the right to make sure that your child is getting what she needs at school.
