Our Target: Let’s help our kids be respectful to their teachers. Our teachers work hard to help our kids learn. The least we can do as parents is be on their side and guide our kids at home to listen, speak respectfully, and stay appropriate in the classroom.

Team Up! Try these simple ideas tomake your child want to talk.

Go into the room your child is in and try to enter quietly so they can’t hear you. Put the palms of your hand over your mouth and blow hard to make that loud, “inappropriate “toot” sound. This should cause a few surprise laughs from you and your child. Now that you have their attention, it’s time to talk about why we DON’T do this in class.
