How to Handle Hard to Handle Parents:
Have you ever been confronted by a parent? Have you ever wondered, “Why is this parent yelling at me?” Have you ever thought, “No wonder the child acts the way they do!” From time to time all staff will be faced by a difficult, demanding, or overbearing parent. From behaviors such as challenging teaching styles to accusations of bullying; some parents can be very intimidating or even aggressive. This learning event is suitable for newly hired, seasoned staff, and administrative staff. Join us today to examine effective ways of handling real-life examples of difficult situations. Real situations will be studied and appropriate solutions reviewed. Participants will discuss face to face communication strategies as well as telephone contact techniques.
Do you want to be seen as a professional? How do you describe your job with young children? The first steps in gaining recognition as early education professionals from others is to first recognize, describe, and conduct ourselves as professionals. Be seen as a professional by creating a professional development plan, maintaining a professional development portfolio, and presenting yourself as a professional in a career with young children.
