Does your child's teacher discipline or educate differently than you would like? Before you march down to the principal's office, here are some ways to have a constructive, calm discussion about your concerns with your child's teacher.
Is your child learning values or lessons at school that are not in line with your own? Do they discipline in a way that you don't agree with? It's not unusual for teachers and parents to butt heads over a child's learning. Here's how to address the problem without coming in too hot.
