One cannot undermine the importance of attending a parent-teacher meeting, but adequate preparation can make the meeting more effective. Children spend most of their day in school, so teachers might observe certain things about your child that might escape your notice. Asking them the right questions and getting detailed insights about your child’s activities can help you make post-school hours productive.
A solid parent-teacher relationship has long-standing benefits in a student’s life. Once students come to realise that both their parents and teachers have a common goal, their respect for everybody both the parties involved increases and. Identifying and solving problems becomes easier. Hence pre-planning what you want to ask the teacher, arriving on time for the meeting conference and scheduling time for another appointment if required are prerequisites for an effective parent-teacher meeting.
But what exactly to ask the teacher? Here are a few sample questions to help you establish your child’s problems and progress in any area.
What are my child’s strengths?
Have you identified my child’s inherent talent? If so, what is it?’
Is my child’s performance in line with the academic goals?
How can I support my child’s weaknesses?
Does my child mingle with his/her classmates?
Is it easy for you to communicate with my child?
Is my child up to date with the homework assigned?
Any suggestions to pique my child’s interest in completing homework?
Do you have any suggestions for me to help my child complete their assignments at home?
What can I do to reinstate all that my child learns in school?
I am encountering a particular behavioural issue with my child. Could you offer advice on how to tackle it skilfully?
Is my child attentive during classes?
Hope the above-listed questions help you make the most out of your parent-teacher meeting. Do let us know in the comments section if you found this article useful.
