But there are pitfalls for the teacher who is attempting to increase the intensity and frequency of her contact with parents.
What follows is a list of Do's and Don'ts that the teacher may find helpful. Do create a partnership with parents A partnership implies that all parties work together — as equals — with specific rights and responsibilities toward a common goal.
Each party contributes his own specific skills and knowledge toward meeting the objectives. Information is shared but power is not shared. This approach is not conducive to creating a genuine partnership.
Do be positive In most families, a phone call or note from a teacher automatically indicates bad news related to the child's behavior or performance.

We would appreciate it if you would remind him of the importance of homework particularly in areas he finds difficult. That daily review and reinforcement will enable him to memorize and master the various processes.
A supportive reminder from Mom always seems to help! Thanks again for your help with our canned food drive. Your extra effort enabled us to surpass our goal. Best, Do remember Before they care how much you know, they gotta know how much you care!
Parents want to feel that you know their child and enjoy his company. For a child who struggles in school, this relationship may be the most important ingredient in his success.
Every parent has attended the never-ending, tedious classroom meeting with a teacher who drones on about the curriculum expectations and the educational objectives but says nothing that indicates any knowledge of or interest in the child as a individual.
Always begin your communication with a quick anecdote that reflects your knowledge of the child as an individual: I love Sarah's new coat. The collar is so unique and the color looks terrific on her. I want to find one like it to send to my niece for her birthday! Jason is certainly excited about the pennant drive, isn't he?
