Parent Teacher Partnership: It’s said that the two best things that we can give our children are roots and wings. So while parents are the primary shapers of moral and ethical values in their kids (roots), teachers and schools prepare children for life enabling them to meet the challenges of 21st century confidently and successfully (wings).
Khaitan Public School, one of the best CBSE schools in Ghaziabad and among the top 10 schools in Ghaziabad 2019, thus, advocates that trust and mutual understanding between parents and teachers is the real secret behind a child’s holistic development.
The parent’s role in education does not end as the child enters school. Researchers say that no amount of formal education can compare to the influence of parents words and actions on their children’s mindset. Parents must realize they have the chief responsibility for their child’s all round development. Education begins with family.
The parents, in fact, provide the foundation on which the teachers are able to build further educational structures. Support and cooperativeness from parents and teachers helps a lot to connect, understand and work towards a child’s growth. Remarkable positive changes are seen in a child if the parents and teacher understand and work in sync, as a team.
Dont dread PTMs, tap the opportunity and work in partnership!
At Khaitan Public School, we host periodic Parent Teacher Meetings to help parents and teachers devise the right plan that helps children to get out of their school difficulties and find ways to ensure their continued success.
It is a chance for the patents to take note of how their child is getting on in school, where their strengths and weaknesses lie, how they socialize with their peers, etc. It is also a chance for the teachers to learn more about the behavioral patterns of the child.
Parent Teacher Partnership, work best when both parents and teachers embrace the mindset that both parties care for the children and want to work together to help them learn better.
