We aaaaaaaall have them in our classes. THOSE parents. You know exactly which parents I’m talking about. The ones who email you at all hours of the day and night, the ones who question every single decision you make, the ones displeased with every paper sent home. Dealing with sassy parents and guardians can be super stressful. But, it doesn’t have to be!
In this episode of Real Teacher Talk, I dive into this topic and discuss where this behavior might be coming from, how to see these parents and guardians through a different lens, and how to navigate tricky conversations. I also chat about simple ways to adapt what you’re already doing to clear up potential misunderstandings, and how to build trust.
While sassy parents and guardians can be a challenge, the families of our students are a critical piece of the puzzle for student success! When we can successfully navigate these relationships, we help set our students up for a positive school experience.

- How to see parents and guardians through a different lens
- How to navigate tricky conversations and build trust
