Parents spoke a few words to the teacher, and the teacher will pay more attention to the child, which is more effective than a “gift”.

During their time at school, parents often communicate with teachers to stay updated on their child's progress. However, it is essential to also consider one's manner of speaking.


The benefits of regular communication with teachers

The biggest advantage of regular contact with teachers is the special care they provide for children.

Teachers are experienced and knowledgeable education experts who have the ability to identify and evaluate the strengths and limitations of children through classroom observations and daily behavior monitoring.


However, due to the limited time resources of teachers, they cannot focus on the details of each individual student.

If parents can communicate with teachers regularly and stay informed about their child’s situation, teachers will have the opportunity to pay more attention and support their education.

Communicating with teachers also helps children feel the care and support from parents and teachers. This creates a strong bond between the family and the school, helping children become more confident and positive in their studies and life.

Communicating with teachers requires skills, say these few sentences and the teacher will pay more attention to your child

1. In communicating with teachers, pay attention to your words and respect them, support and acknowledge their efforts, avoid saying things that make others uncomfortable. For example:

“Dear teacher, I know that my knowledge of child education is limited. I promise to learn more from you, and I believe that I will not disturb you anymore!”

“Dear teacher, if there is anything in the classroom that requires parental support, I want you to know that I am always willing to help. We all want what’s best for our children, and I will actively cooperate with you.”


2. Learn to proactively communicate with teachers, but do not call them regularly. If you have something to discuss, you can send a message and the teacher will reply when they have free time.

3. Instead of complaining to the teacher about your child’s issues, you should actively cooperate with the teacher to find ways to solve the problems. Avoid criticizing the teacher’s shortcomings in front of the child, as this can undermine the child’s respect for the teacher and be detrimental to the process of educating the child.

Instead, you can approach the teacher in a constructive and open manner to discuss the ongoing issues. Listen to the teacher’s perspective and share your opinions in a spirit of collaboration to find appropriate solutions. When both parents and teachers are united in working together, we will create a supportive environment and encourage the best learning and development for children.

Avoid saying these ③ phrases:

① Don’t say, “I want the teacher to praise my child more”

The feeling the teacher gets when they hear this phrase is: Are you saying that I haven’t praised your child enough?

If you want the teacher to praise your child more, a better way is to encourage your child to actively answer questions in class. This way, when having a private conversation with the teacher about your child’s situation, you can say: “My child said that they answered a question correctly and the teacher praised them. Thank you for encouraging my child so much.”

State the facts + sincere gratitude, and the teacher will feel that: the parents are concerned about their child’s situation in school, the child is willing to confide in their parents about what’s happening in school, and the parents are affirming them.

② Don’t say, “My child is very intelligent, but not serious and careless in doing assignments.”

The purpose of the teacher’s feedback to parents is to help the child and the parents solve academic problems, not to make excuses for poor academic performance.

In the teacher’s eyes, if you are not doing assignments carefully and being careless in conversation, it still indicates poor academic performance and a lack of solid foundation.

When the teacher gives feedback about your child’s academic issues, what parents should do is cooperate with the teacher and help the child study well.

You can humbly ask the teacher what you can do as parents to help your child make progress.

③ Don’t say, “We are busy with work, so please take care of the children”

Parents want their children to be healthy, but teachers and parents aren’t they busy too?

You take care of one child, and the teacher has to take care of many children in the class.

Never say in front of the teacher that you are busy and don’t have time to take care of your own children, as this will make the teacher feel that you are blaming them.

If you are very busy with work, you can say to the teacher: “We are very busy with work, there are areas where our child is not doing well, please point them out, and we will definitely cooperate fully.”

In conclusion, parents need to maintain more communication with their child’s teachers, communicate more, and pay attention to their speaking skills. More attention from teachers is better than a “gift”.
