February Blog: Dialog Between Teacher And Parents: That's What Children Need

Dialog Between Teacher And Parents: That's What Children Need


This month's blog is Dialog Between Teacher And Parents: That's What Children Need.

Parents should pose as role models and teach their children good behavior, while teachers should point out the values and educate them. But, does it end here? The debate over which responsibilities belong to the teacher and which to the parents is one of the biggest when it comes to child development, and there actually isn't a certain barrier between the two. The fact is as follows - both teachers and parents must acknowledge what children need, and be involved in their development into adults.

Guest blogger Julie Petersen is a writer and an editor. She runs her own blog, AskPetersen.com, where she tries to help students to improve their writing skills.
