How do you know when it's serious and if you should step in? Behavioral Pediatrician Dr. Tim Jordan has some tips:
1. Whether it is unhappiness over grades, disrespectful or unfair treatment, or class rules, encourage your kids to try to handle it with the teacher directly.
2. Building a strong, trusting relationship with your child`s teacher right from the start creates the rapport, safety, and connection needed to more seamlessly work through issues that come up during the year.
