"How to Handle Difficult Parents" is a funny, but practical, guide to working effectively with parents and avoiding unnecessary conflict. Whether you're a teacher (regular or special education) or a coach, this book will give you practical suggestions regarding what to say and how to say it to parents who question your lesson plans, challenge your disciplinary decisions, or threaten to tell the principal on you. Bringing years of experience as a teacher, principal, superintendent, and professor, the author shows teachers how to handle the most difficult parent types, including the Helicopter Mom, the Caped Crusader, Ms. "Quit Picking on My Kid," The Intimidator, No Show's Dad, and Pinocchio's Mom, among others. Emphasizing ways to help create constructive conversation, this revised edition of "How to Handle Difficult Parents" is a must-have for teachers everywhere, both those just beginning and those already deep in the trenches.
