Leaving your child in another ones care is a learning opportunity.

Enjoy Your Freedom. It is a good thing for your child to see that you have a life and a source of joy other than them. Your going away also gives your child the opportunity to get to know their caregiver in a new way.

Let Them Reach Out. Rather than call, which might remind your child how much they miss you, you should invite your child to call you when they want to touch base with you. You might also choose to text or email to keep the communication on the light side.

Leave A Love Note. Give your caregiver a note to give your child at breakfast or record your voice reading a bedtime story. This allows your child to know you are thinking about them without taking them away from the fun activities they will be doing in your absence.

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.

I am here for you

Let’s work together.

Think positive. Asking your child to repeat constructive phrases can soothe their nerves. The night before a quiz, they might say, “I studied a lot for this,” or “I did well on my last test.” Have you seen the other Butterflies posts?
