Turning Parents from Critics to Allies.
Sagarese, Margaret M.; Giannetti, Charlene C.
Educational Leadership, v55 n8 p40-41 May 1998
Authors of "The Roller Coaster Years" (1997) advise how middle-level educators can turn wary, disinterested parents into allies. Teachers should welcome parents, advertise their own expertise, implement an early-warning system, portray children positively, convey shared values, reassure parents about children's safety, demonstrate insider information, empathize with parents, and be fair disciplinarians and consistent role models.
